John P.A. Ioannidis of the Stanford Department of Medicine has published a now peer-reviewed paper entitled Reconciling estimates of global spread and infection fatality rates of COVID-19: an overview of systematic evaluations in which he estimates the infection fatality rate of the global coronavirus to be 0.15%. This is 6% of the estimated infection fatality rate of the 1918 "Spanish" flu. Restated and inverted, the Spanish flu was 17 times more deadly! The coronavirus epidemic is half as deadly as malaria by these numbers. The Coronavirus is only slightly more deadly than two notable Asian flu epidemics, one from around '57, and the other (mainly Hong Kong) around '68.
