New Data on the Number of Asymptomatic Infections Dramatically Lowers the COVID-19 Case-fatality Rate

 

(OMNS June 7, 2020) The public has been made aware of the number of COVID-19 deaths and reported cases that have occurred since the beginning of the current pandemic. However, the number of unreported cases has not been widely known or publicized. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that more than one-third of SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that can lead to COVID-19) infections are asymptomatic, meaning that initial estimations of its severity were grossly overestimated. Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) has collated data from U.S. antibody studies and produced an educational document outlining how an accurate case-fatality rate (CFR) requires antibody studies in order to guide and measure medical care and public health policies.

Comparing COVID-19 to previous seasonal and pandemic influenzas reveals a similar fatality rate. Similar to CDC estimations, PIC's analysis results in a COVID-19 CFR of 0.26%, which is comparable to the case fatality rates of previous seasonal and pandemic flu periods.
