New CDC Estimates: Fatality Rate For COVID-19 Drops Again And May Surprise You

The CDC’s new estimate, for the first time, is broken down by age groups. Here is what the CDC calls its “current best estimate” of chances of dying from the virus if you get infected:

1 out of 34,000 for ages 0 to 19;

1 out of 5,000 for ages 20 to 49;

1 out of 200 for ages 50 to 69; and

1 out of 20 for ages 70 and up.

Here’s another way to look at the same numbers. If you get infected, your chances of surviving are as follows:

Age Group / Probability of Survival

0-19 / 99.997%
20-49 / 99.98%
50-69 / 99.5%
70+ / 94.6%
