True Death Rate
Everyone understands that it is very possible that people with the disease were dead and had not been able to get the medical help they need. If we rely on the numbers of the hospitals, it would give us a very wrong idea because it would be missing those who dropped dead and looked like they had a heart attack etc.
Many cities have been reporting that the number of dead bodies were increased by several times.
It is quite safe to assume that most of the extra fatality had been caused by COVID-19.
Assuming this virus has a similar transmission power to the common flu, then it would be obvious to say that the true death rate is several times greater than flu.
This is a bad omen because most people would remember how the hospitals got fed up every winter. If COVID-19 turns out like the flu, where vaccines can only protect some if the strain was guessed correctly, even if the death rate would be cut by half, the hospital system will still collapse...
