Coronavirus Hong Kong
Data updated on 15 MAY 2020 02:12 UTC + 00
Since the first known case of COVID-19 in Hong Kong was confirmed until now, a total of 1,052 infected people and 4 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 1 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 1,009 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from Hong Kong.
The current population of Hong Kong is 7,436,154, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In Hong Kong, the rate of infection stands at 14.15 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.0141% 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 Hong Kong death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 0.38%, we see a difference of -3.02%.
