• The Wuhan coronavirus has grown to infect 43,119 people claiming over 1,000 lives. Mainland China is the epicenter of the crisis.
  • With 43,119 confirmed cases and 1,018 deaths, the disease has a fatality rate of 2.3%.
  • While the coronavirus death total is rising rapidly, there is a glimmer of hope. Recovery rates are also going up.

Quarantined cruise ships of doom, terrifying online videos, and wild conspiracy theories. The Wuhan coronavirus crisis looks, on the surface, like a disaster rapidly slipping out of control. As the new disease’s death rate tops 1,000, people have a right to be scared.

According to the latest data, of the 43,119 confirmed coronavirus cases, 4,190 have recovered while only 1,018 have died. As healthcare workers become better at treating the disease, we may see 2019-nCoV’s fatality rate go down even further.
