That’s a completely inflated number. The real number is closer to 2% and if you’re otherwise healthy and not very young/old much lower than even that. 

I don’t know how true this is but I read in one of the many articles that children are making it through unscathed and hardly if any have died. It is older people who should worry most and those with copd and other pre-existing health issues. This I fear is going to clean out our old folks homes.

I had someone tell me that children weren't catching this at all, but that's completely untrue.  I'm obviously not a doctor but I am connected with the emergency response through my work in some ways, as I was with Ebola, and there's still a lot of misinformation out there.
