Re: Lockdown?

In the study published Feb. 18 in the China CDC Weekly, researchers found a death rate from COVID-19 to be around 2.3% in mainland China. That's my point 0.1% of what, total population? if we are talking total population and if China has 6 billion 2.3% would be almost 261 Million at the end of one ...
