Since the first known case of COVID-19 in Asia was confirmed until now, a total of 739,026 infected people and 23,592 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 4,968 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 418,459 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from Asia.
The current population of Asia is 265,699,812, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In Asia, the rate of infection stands at 16.2 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.0162% of the population is officially infected.
World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that the coronavirus kills about 3.4% of the people it infects. But that death rate varies between countries and across age groups. It’s also likely to change over time.
Comparing WHO estimations against the Asia death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 3.19%, we see a difference of -0.21%.
