Re: "The death rate is, according to Beijing's numbers, about two per cent"

That 2% figure is deaths as a percentage of infections, which is completely the wrong way to do it. You can do it that way after the virus has run it's course, and you know the final dead/survive numbers.

Currently the dead:survive ratio is around 34:66.
