Hey. . They keep reporting 2.3% fatality rate (or thereabouts). 86,000 sick, nearly 3,000 dead.

Basic math. Isn't that in the vicinity of 3.5+%?

Sure, probably add in a few thousand who have recovered and are no longer counted in that 86k ... but also gotta figure some of the current 86k aren't gonna make it, either.

Or am I missing something?

@nattiegoogie you are missing the time between death and contagion.
