Since the first known case of COVID-19 in Italy was confirmed until now, a total of 223,096 infected people and 31,368 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 855 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 115,288 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from Italy.
The current population of Italy is 61,208,911, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In Italy, the rate of infection stands at 364.48 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.3645% 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 Italy death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 14.06%, we see a difference of 10.66%.
