The U.S. Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated its estimated Infection Fatality Rate (IFR) parameters to include age-specific data showing the vast majority of people who contract the Chinese coronavirus survives.
CDC Data: COVID-19 Pandemic Planning Scenarios
Survival rates by age group –
- 0-19 years old = 99.997%
- 20-49 years old = 99.98%
- 50-69 years old = 99.5%
- 70 or older = 94.6%
That means that for people 69 years old or younger, the survival rate is between 99.5 percent and 99.997 percent, while for those 70 or older, it is an estimated 94.6 percent.Breitbart.com

Thus, the actual number is likely to be less than 140,000 US deaths from COVID. And, most of the deaths are still occurring in nursing homes.
