Covid-19: At 3.3%, India’s fatality rate almost as low as South Korea’s
NEW DELHI: India's fatality rate of 3.3% of total confirmed coronavir s cases and deaths of 0.09 people per one lakh population compares well with some other countries, including South Korea, which is seen as a top performer in containing the disease, and that resorted to measures like mass quarantine to limit the pandemic.
Among the early countries to have been infected with the outbreak of Covid-19, South Korea has done well by confining its total count to 10,780 cases and deaths at 250. Its case-fatality rate is among the lowest at 2.3% while deaths per lakh of population have been at 0.48, higher than at 0.33 and India’s 0.09, which is the lowest among all major countries, according to trends captured at the Coronavir s Resource Centre, Johns Hopkins University.
, with 83,959 cases and 4,637 deaths reported so far, has a case-fatality rate of 5.5%. So far India has 37,257 total cases and 1,223 deaths.
The situation is very grim in some European countries and the US. Deaths per lakh of population has been the highest in Belgium at 67.44, followed by Spain, Italy, UK, France and US at 53, 47, 42, 37 and 20 respectively.
The case-fatality ratio, that is total deaths out of total Covid-19 cases, in these countries is also high, ranging between 12% to 16%, except in US where it is 6% with 65,000 deaths reported so far out of 11 lakh confirmed cases.
According to the mortality analyses of the university, the data could represent a different picture if more people are tested.

Narendra Modi is not only an inspiration for honest, hardworking, patriotic Indians. All the world leaders and people hold him in great respect. His great vision saved India from a huge disaster. He deserves the Nobel Prize for Peace.

In fact if we had not done timely lock down the deaths could have been in crores
Please stop comparing south Korea. Their overall graph has come down where as corona is still going high in most part of our country.
But India is rank no.1 in suppressing actual data no one can beat us not even .
The Coronavir s death rate for 80 years olds is 14.8%. Patients ages 70 to 79 years have a death rate of 8% and those ages 60 to 69 have a death rate of 3.6%. (Younger age groups have lower death rates; 1.3% for those 50 to 59; 0.4% for the age group 40 to 49; and just 0.2% for people ages 10 to 39.)
80岁以上患者的新冠病死率为14.8%。70 - 79岁患者的病死率为8%，60 - 69岁患者的病死率为3.6%。较年轻年龄组的病死率较低：50-59岁为1.3%，40-49岁为0.4%，10-39岁仅为0.2%。

India could contain the spread of the infection in a better manner because of the timely lock down
SAVE ANDHRA FROM TUGLAQ
Korea didnt shutdown
Can’t compare. See the population of both the countries.
Clearly undertested. Please dont be misled by this data
Testing rate in India is so low compared to south Korea, it's like we close our eyes and think the world is black
Why indian gt not deploying Army on red zones ..people are not serious...there should be proper lockdown to contain the vir s...otherwise we will continue to extend the lockdown and our economy will severly suffer..
With testing barely being done per million obviously such great results will be there. South Korea has one of the highest testing in world.
Gobardhan Feku PM
Korean has provided sry for 6 months to all those who have lost their jobs and tax break to business who have been impacted. Korean go nment has passed a law that no tenants can be evicted for 6 months due to non payment of rent.
It might be even low if we have not the episode of TABLIGI JAMAT !
India has already won the war.
Compare the testing % too
Shortly say our Prime Minister's action in direction, we have saved so many precious lives from the mouth of death. Considering our population the mortality rate is so meager.

How long will we be able to maintain this rate & at what cost? Once there is relaxation of lockdown things may change.
Krishan Kumar Totlani
It is all because of efforts by Team India led by PM Modi & able health minister Dr Harshvardhan & not to forget the states who has made it possible. Keep it up Team India---We will win over COVID-19.
it is diverting attention from the facts that cases are increasing every day in terms of percentage on day to day basis.lot more has to be done
This comparison makes no sense.South Korea did not do a lockdown but have done huge number of testing.India is in complete lockdown from the begng & has so far only tested 0.07% of the population.Moreover India has only 6% of the population above 60 whereas Italy has 25% & Japan 40% & this disease affects the geriatric population most.Some comparison can be made when the lockdown is lifted & India tests atleast 1% of the population.
Unfortunately there are many people in this country who still feel that the coronavir s outbreak is an over-hyped happening.
It is not the best thing to compare India with South Korea geographically size wise and population wise.

All because of the actions taken by GOI at time and equally people supported. This is being the reason for low fatality.
South Korea with a population of 5.1 crores tested 5.63 lacs people. Jndia tested 9.76 lacs ag inst a population of 135 crores. If you do mot test you do not know who is infected. Hence the comparion is incorrect.
