How is the mortality rate calculated?

Normally, the mortality rate is calculated by a simple calculation of dividing the number of people who died by the number of cases. But The Johns Hopkins University has recently mentioned that the mortality rate also is based on a number of factors. This is the reason the mortality rate is varying from one country to another. Some of these factors are:

  • The rate highly depends on the number of people who are getting tested. There are a number of times when people with mild symptoms are not tested and hence the exact number of cases affected by the infection is not tracked. In this case, the mortality rate automatically increases. 
  • It also depends on the demographics of a place. A place where the population of older age is higher, the mortality rate is high because older people affected by the virus have a lower chance of survival. 
  • The mortality rate also depends on the nature of the healthcare sector of a country. Countries with a proper healthcare service offer better facilities and treatments to the patients and hence more people get recovered. On the other hand, health services offering poor facilities will lead to poor treatment and hence a higher rate of mortality. 
  • Apart from these many factors, there can be also many other factors that can impact the mortality rate of a country.

Hence, though the current figure mentions the mortality rate of India to be 3.2%, it is based on the factors that impact the mortality rate of a place. The rate of new cases has suddenly erupted in the country since the last few days and this can again bring a change in the country’s mortality rate for sure. This can be known by the mortality rate of last month (April 2020) that was calculated to be 3% that has increased up to 3.2% this month (May’2020).
