Some Good News About Covid-19
Infections are less deadly as doctors gain practice
Bloomberg reports that there are signs that Covid-19 infections are becoming less deadly for hospitalized people as doctors gain experience and new drugs become available for use. The gains may be marginal, but taken together they matter for the Covid-19 fatality rate and overall outcomes. Keep in mind: the story is focusing on individual risk. The overall risk of dying from Covid-19 depends greatly on the spread and control of the virus.
