New academic study shows Covid deaths same as flu


From Vlad Tepes Blog:

Before posting this, I had it checked out by a Doctor I know in the US who said he is very familiar with Ioannidis’s work. This is legit. 
Abstract Background: Estimates of community spread and infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 have varied across studies. Efforts to synthesize the evidence reach seem- ingly discrepant conclusions. Methods: Systematic evaluations of seroprevalence studies that had no restrictions based on country.... 
Conclusions: All systematic evaluations of seroprevalence data converge that SARS-CoV-2 infection is widely spread globally. Acknowledging residual uncer- tainties, the available evidence suggests average global IFR of ~0.15% and ~1.5-2.0 billion infections by February 2021 with substantial differences in IFR and in infec- tion spread across continents, countries and locations.
