COVID-19 case fatality rates in select countries worldwide February-August 2020

As of August 17, 2020, it was estimated that the case fatality rate for COVID-19 in Italy was around 14 percent. Case fatality rates are calculated by dividing the number of confirmed deaths by the number of confirmed cases. It is important to understand that the case fatality rate is not a good measure of the mortality risk of COVID-19. For a variety of reasons the case fatality rate varies over time and from country to country. Case fatality rates need to be interpreted with caution, especially when the total number of cases is not known, as is the current case with the COVID-19 pandemic. This statistic shows the development of the case fatality rates in select countries worldwide from February 25 to August 17, 2020.
