Since the first known case of COVID-19 in Japan was confirmed until now, a total of 16,120 infected people and 697 deaths have been officially registered.
Currently 259 people are critically hospitalized and fortunately 9,868 have already been recovered. Let us remember that these data are the officially offered by different administrations from Japan.
The current population of Japan is 126,500,000, based on latest World Bank and United Nations data.
In Japan, the rate of infection stands at 12.74 cases per 100,000 people, therefore, as of today, it is estimated that the 0.0127% 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 Japan death rate, over the total number of patients, which is 4.32%, we see a difference of 0.92%.
