Case fatality rate (CFR) is defined as the percentage of people who died among people diagnosed with a specific disease.
The first death was reported on March 20, 2020 (See graph of COVID-19 cases). As seen in the graph below, the fatality rate continuously increased for about a month, reaching a peak of 1.32% deaths among COVID-19 patients. This continuous rise of the CFR reflects the time course of the aggravation of the disease symptoms. Since then the CFR has slowly increased. According to the last count on July 2, 2020, the CFR is 1.20%.
The death rate is dependent on the age of the patients (See graph of age dependence of death).
There are major differences in the CFR among countries.
