President Trump tried to reassure the public that the fatality rate from coronavirus could drop as more tests are done.
“If you add many, many people that have it and they don’t know they have it,” the President said during a meeting with airline executives on Wednesday. “I think that number will probably be a lot different number.”
“I think that’s an important thing for people to know,” he added.
More on this: In a news briefing on Tuesday, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity.
That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease. Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.”
