Comprehensive new research conducted by Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London has derived very reliable estimates of what percent of the population has been infected with coronavirus in each of 11 European countries. From these numbers, we can easily calculate that the case fatality rate from coronavirus infections is at least twenty times higher than the seasonal flu. We can also conclude that at least five million Americans would have to die in order to achieve “herd immunity” (see full calculations below).

The findings are crucial for understanding how nations must respond to the coronavirus pandemic because they provide a roadmap for where we are right now in terms of penetration of the virus across the populations of the nations studied. Many “pandemic denialists” have, over the last month, claimed that the virus has already infected the vast majority of the populations across the USA and European nations, claiming the lockdowns should be ended with no additional measures needed because, they claim, “herd immunity” has already been achieved.

We now know that interpretation of this pandemic is in error. In the USA, Germany, Denmark and even the UK, the coronavirus infections have only just begun.

The highest infection penetration so far is found in Spain, with an estimated 15% infection rate

The research finds that Spain already has around 15% of its population infected while Italy has just under 10% infected. Those are the high numbers. All the other nations are significantly lower, and Germany has just 0.72% of its population infected so far, which is one reason why hospitalizations and deaths in Germany have been so low. (The real calculated range for Germany, with a 95% certainty range, is 0.28% – 1.8%.)
