This is particularly true in elderly patients with respiratory distress. So some skewing both ways. Should be improving now, but the info I'm seeing suggests a death rate that will level out above 1%, which is pretty high, and troublesome in a virus that is this contagious. We just had a case in Skagit County (50 miles north of Seattle) where a meeting of 60 people resulted in 30 confirmed infections from one asymptomatic person.
