I had been waiting for something like this--on lethality
I picked up the following from a health department situation report:
- Case fatality among hospitalized patients was estimated at 14 percent by one report, with case fatality among non-hospitalized cases assumed to be much lower.
- Various sources report that the outbreak in China is likely significantly larger in case count and geography than current estimates suggest due to the frequency of undetected mild cases.
And, the first case of person-to-person transmission in the U.S. was reported in Chicago on Thursday, January 30th.
