SARS And Mortality Rates

The Agonist has an interesting post that examines the mortality rates for SARS. Based on rough mathematic evidence, the mortality rate for SARS appears to be from 13.8% to 18.6%.

If so, the SARS outbreak could be the deadliest epidemic since the killer influenza of 1918. The Agonist has been following the story closely, and is a good source for breaking news on the spread of SARS.
