So about a month ago we had over 7K active cases and today that number is down to just a little over 4500 active cases and yes the number of people dying is very very low and the people recuperating from the virus is very high. About 97%. That is what we need to pay attention to.

A 3% fatality rate is too high. it has to be in a under 1% level.
