I have a niece who's husband is a chef at the Epcot center and Disney has shut down for atleast 2 weeks and this is a busy time for them
That is a high mortality rate when you use those numbers. What you have take into account is the people that have it but their number is not recorded. An example, a niece of mine has it pretty bad as does her immediate family of four yet she was the only one in that family that was tested. Even though four people had it only one is accounted for the tally of cases. That type of situation has a huge effect on percentages.The local newspaper did an article about the first person to succumb to the disease at Hardin County's hospital.
It happened to be a 75 year old lady who I knew in my youth and was the aunt of a friend from high school.
This is what makes it really hit home. Not just a bunch of numbers and charts.
Ky is not fairing well among those who have been infected.
Of the 770 cases that have been resolved, as of 5:00 p.m. yesterday, 653 have recovered and 117 have passed away.
If I learned to calculate properly, that's a 15.19% mortality rate. Not good.
