What is the Infection Fatality Rate?

3 June 2020  /  Updated 27 August 2020

This is one of the most important issues in trying to understand how deadly COVID-19 is and how we should respond to it, and yet opinion is sharply divided about it, with some researchers putting it at between 0.1% and 0.2% (John Ioannidis), while others – such as the epidemiologists working for the WHO – putting it at 3.4%.

In this section, I intend to publish scholarly papers that try and estimate the IFR of SARS-CoV-2, as well as its seroprevalence, by epidemiologists and other medical researchers.
