    Preliminary calculations for the average number of infections that each infected person may go on to cause, known as R0. This is estimated to be 2.0 to 3.0 people per infected person. In comparison to seasonal flu, which usually has an R0 of around 1.3.

    The World Health Organization accounced on February 24, 2020 that the fatality rate in Wuhan, China, considered the epicenter of the outbreak, is between 2% and 4%. Outside of Wuhan, it is thought to be closer to 0.7%. In a recent JAMA paper The overall case-fatality rate was 2.3%, No deaths occurred in those aged 9 years and younger, but cases in those aged 70 to 79 years had an 8% fatality rate and those aged 80 years and older had a fatality rate of 14.8%. No deaths were reported among mild and severe cases. The fatality rate was 49% among critical cases, and elevated among those with preexisting conditions: 10.5% for people with cardiovascular disease, 7.3% for diabetes, 6.3% for chronic respiratory disease, 6% for hypertension, and 5.6% for cancer.

    What are the chances that you will die of New Coronavirus? The statistical chances for normal adults up to 70 years of age is about .8 to 2 percent. That is, out of every hundred people who get it, one or two will die between the ages of 10 and 70.

    This is scary, but it could be much worse.

    I am 66, and suffer from HBP, cardiac artery disease, diabetes and emphysema. Thus, if I catch the disease, I my chances are 66% I'll survive, and 33% I'll die.
