Rather than continuing to speculate - the World Health Organisation map linked below shows that ~3.7% of people who have tested positive with Covid-19 have died from it (5,393 from 142,649 as at 14/3/2020 1600CET).
Earlier in this thread you’re talking about a seasonal flu death rate of somewhere between 0.06% and 0.2% (it is fairly safe to assume you are talking about % of diagnosed cases). In which case 3.7% is significantly more than an order of magnitude larger.
It is worth noting that countries like the US have done a terrible job of testing to date, so that may skew the figures (probably decreasing %) and that it is still very early in the progress of disease so % of deaths will probably go up as a larger percentage of diagnosed cases have had time to run their course one way or the other.

@05wt05 said in Latrell Mitchell Contract Discussion:

The thing im most happy about atm is reading uncle nick calling mr brydens. It may finally be time that we have a board and chairperson the rest of the league take seriously and have a little respect for and more professionalism toward. I just cant imagine uncle nick ever contacting our chairperson five or so years ago about anything. To me that is a huge positive.

Noting that it’s mainly because politis wants something ie mitchell gone anywhere bar souffs

I hope your friend is OK.
Basically the creative writers in the ‘press’ these days are more interested in creating a story than reporting facts.
