Having said that, its mortality rate(using No. of dead/No. of (dead+recovered) as an estimate of actual fatality rate) has fallen from an earlier 75% to 41% of closed cases, lower than Italy's 44%. Watch out for UK whose number of recoveries is still less than the number of dead, its high mortality rate of 81% is therefore worrying. The only consolation is those critically ill (ie need ventilators) is only a small minority (only 1.5% of the active cases). Next to watch is Indonesia and the Philippines as their mortality rates are the next highest, at 69% and 62% respectively. I worry for these countries as their health care systems are not as robust as the developed countries. Germany is the least affected of the European countries, with mortality rate of only 4%, similar to that of China.
