World Health Organization Director's Statement on Coronavirus COVID-19

World Health Organization Director's Statement on Coronavirus COVID-19

A "major difference is that COVID-19 causes more severe disease than seasonal influenza.

While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.

Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected."

- Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, World Health Organization's Director-General
