Their death rate is about 0.4%. .
More than 0.5% now and it was 0.2% not so long ago... it will trend up to the 1~1.5% ish you see in other countries with healthcare systems not overwhelmed and a mature epidemic.
Germany also seems to be hit mostly by a mild strain...
This is the same strain as in Italy, so there is no miracle strain, which was so nice, to hit only Germany and the rest of the world get the bad one. This is just conspiracy xxx from some populist stupids (you are free to use any bad word for the xxx).
The death rate will be even lower than 0.5% and pretty sure somewhere between 0.2 to 0.5%, as also in Germany many of the mild or asymptotic cases have been missed. In Germany, they are planning to perform some epidemic tests rounds, to identify the total number/% of infected and the total death rate e.g. But till now, these immunogenity speed tests, which will be used, are still in development.
Pretty sure, the tests have been done early and as near as best possible in Germany, as can be seen also regarding of the average age of the tested, confirmed positive with Coronavirus (this is 45 years) and the average age of Germans (this is between 44.5 and 45 years now).This was done, to stop the outbreak and the infection chains early, and it has worked (also it has at least only slowed it). But this will also now change. They will now reduce the testing to patients, who are serious ill and patients, who are high risk patients, health care staff or nursing home staff e.g. It is not any more useful, to test everyone; who is now lightly sick shall just stay home for two or three weeks.
And as opposite example: In Italy the average age oft he positive tests is 65. So in Italy, regular only the serious ill patients, when they have been seen at hospital, have been tested. So in Italy, this is just the death rate of the serious ill patients, who have been hospitalized.
