Risk of dying of Chinavirus for 20-49 yr-olds: 1 in 5,000 – Risk of dying in a motor vehicle crash: 1 in 5,000

I wonder how many people aged 20 to 49 years old are willing to stop driving? As near as I can tell, their odds of dying from Covid-19 look about the same.

“Based on latest CDC data, the Wuhan coronavirus poses virtually no death risk whatsoever for people under the age of 50,” writes Mike Adams in Natural News. (emphasis added)

“For people aged 20 – 49 years, the IFR drops to just 1 in 5000. This means that for every 5,000 people who are infected within this age group, one fatality is expected.

For comparison, “the annual risk of being killed in a motor vehicle crash for the average American is about 1 in 5,000,” according to a recent article on pbs.org.

“Those below the age of 20 have an even lower fatality rate: About 1 in 33,000,” writes Adams.

“In summary, the risk of death from the coronavirus in people under the age of 50 is extremely small, and approaching zero.

“At the same time, these data also confirm the virus remains extremely dangerous to people over the age of 70, and the CDC estimates that 1 in 18 elderly people who contract the virus (i.e. are “infected”) end up being killed by it.”

These numbers are based on the CDC’s new data here , using “Scenario 5,” labeled “Current Best Estimate.”
