According to researcher Anirban Basu, who directs the department of pharmacy at the University of Washington in Seattle, 1.3% of COVID-19 patients will die from the virus. This calculation is based on the cumulative deaths and detected cases from around the country. It should be noted that this calculation hasn't taken into account the amount of undetected cases, which are people that have contracted to the virus but have shown no symptoms and aren't officially reported.

Basu notes that if those people were added into the calculation that it's likely the COVID-19 mortality rate (death rate) would be closer to 1%. Basu also said that correct social distancing measures will also assist in keeping the death rate down, but even if everyone abides by the correct social distancing measures its still estimated by the White House that there will be anywhere between 100,000 and 200,000 COVID-19 deaths this year. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that the seasonal flu death rate sits at around 0.1%, so as you can see, the COVID-19 death rate is astronomically higher.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
