University of Washington scientists predict a catastrophic number of deaths from coronavirus. According to them, mortality from coronavirus is 13 times higher than that of influenza.

As follows from the data of doctors published in the journal Health Affairs, US mortality among people with coronavirus is 1,3%. At the same time, an average of 0,1% of patients die from influenza. Because of this, states predict that about 35,5 million people will be infected by the end of the year. This is almost the same as it was in 2018-2019 during the flu epidemic.

According to medical forecasts, about 500 thousand people will die from coronavirus. In total, according to the most optimistic forecast, about 20% of the US population will be infected during the year, and the number of fatal cases may grow to 1,2 million people. Now 1,5 million people are infected in the states.
