I can say we will see more cases and things will get worse than they are right now
Dr. Fauci also said that the COVID-19 is “more lethal” than the regular flu. In addition to that, even if the mortality rate drops far below the World Health Organization’s estimate of 3.4%.
From November 2002 through July 2003 is the ran of the SARS epidemic with the mortality rate of 9% to 10%. That’s why Fauci said that it was not as lethal as the COVID-19 but it spreads much faster.
He added that the seasonal flu merely had a mortality rate of 0.1%. Meanwhile, the WHO’s estimated mortality rate for COVID-19 began at 2%.
The outbreak of the virus was believed to have begun in Wuhan, China in December of last year. Since then, it had spread across the world and had become a pandemic.
