Answer ( 1 )

  1. If you mean the probabilty of a person surviving the infection with nCoV-2019, overall it is close to 98 percent. (That is, the case-fatality rate is close to 2 percent)

    The elderly and those with chronic conditions have a reduced chance or survival, while younger people a greater chance.

    By comparison, SARS had a case fatality rate of about 10 percent, and MERS, a fatality rate of close to 34 percent. So these diseases were more lethal to the individual.
