What is the mortality rate of the new coronavirus?

The mortality rate for the Coronavirus is approx. 1%. From global confirmed cases it seems to rate as high as 4% however it is very probable that many of the mild cases are going undetected. 

Irrelevant of this, it still makes the Covid-19 approximately 10 times deadlier than the seasonal flu which is estimated to cause between 290000 and 650000 deaths per year globally. For the over 60’s the death rate also increases significantly.

I know a lot of people like to see numbers. These are changing on a daily basis so if you are someone who wants to know the figures associated with the Coronavirus please check them from reputable source.
