Data from Johns Hopkins University shows that Australia currently boasts a case fatality rate from COVID-19 of just 1.19 per cent. This compares with 15.44 per cent in the UK and four per cent in the US. The case fatality rate is the ratio between confirmed deaths and confirmed cases of the coronavirus. Professor Paul Glasziou of Bond University says a number of factors can contribute to a lower CFR rate, including the number of cases that are detected, the ability of a nation’s healthcare system to cope with the virus, and the age demographic of the population.
