  • Updated Oxford University Study Shows Covid-19 Fatality Rates To Be Comparable To Flu

University of Oxford’s Center for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) has published an analysis called “Global Covid-19 Case Fatality Rates”, in which the mortality of Covid19 (IFR) is evaluated between 0.10% and 0.36% (i.e. comparable to that of a strong seasonal flu).

The lethality rate in people over 70 years of age without serious past illnesses is less than 1%. In people over the age of 80 the lethality rate is between 3% and 15%, depending on whether the deaths occurred with or due to the disease. The mortality rate in children – unlike the flu – is close to zero.

To explain the high mortality rate in northern Italy, the research team draws attention, among other things, to the high rate of antibiotic resistance, the highest in Europe. In fact, data from the Italian authorities shows that around 80% of the deceased have been treated with antibiotics, which suggests bacterial superinfections…
