Is The Previous Mortality Rate Estimate for Coronavirus Too High?

The World Health Organization’s estimated case-fatality rate was 3.4%.

WSJ-Opinion: Is the Coronavirus as Deadly as They Say?
Current estimates about the Covid-19 fatality rate may be too high by orders of magnitude.

If it’s true that the novel coronavirus would kill millions without shelter-in-place orders and quarantines, then the extraordinary measures being carried out in cities and states around the country are surely justified. But there’s little evidence to confirm that premise—and projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high.
