One has only to look at a medically advanced country like Italy, and seen it mushroom...Around Feb 15 Italy had its first 3 cases. Today, Italy has had almost 41000 cases, coronavirus spreads that fast. And they have had 3405 deaths...8.3% of those infected in Italy have died! This, in a medically advanced country! One doctor believes the high percentage of cases ending in death is due to its demographics...the median ago of hospital patients is about 67, whereas the median age in Germany is almost 20 years younger...and mortality more greatly affects the older population.
