The COVID-19 pandemic has a much higher mortality rate than influenza.
From January 2020 to November 2020, 1,465,919 death cases have been reported worldwide due to COVID-19. The mortality rate of COVID-19 is substantially higher (possibly ten times or more) than that of most strains of the flu, according to Johns Hopkins University. Many news outlets have confirmed this.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
