New CDC Estimates: Fatality Rate For COVID-19 Drops Again And May Surprise You
What’s are the real chances of dying if you are infected with COVID-19? You’ll probably be surprised how low they are according to new numbers from the Center for Disease Control. We’ll state those numbers simply for those of you who aren’t crazy about math. The CDC’s new estimate, for the first time, is broken down by age groups.

Very little media attention, however, has gone toward the new numbers.
