    • If the figures given are correct and also honest, there were 126 confirmed and 31 deaths, so you should be able to assume 95 recovered unless some of those are still ill with the virus.

        • extremely high 25%. In fact mortality rate in UK around 20% in a developed country where it is much lower in under developed countries, I would love someone to explain Why
