Just venting about the mentality being mocked in the title. :catprone



6 million accidents result in 37k deaths each year.


(37,000 * 100) / 6,000,000 = 0.61666666666% of crashes are fatal.


Just shy of 30m cases results in a bit over 500k deaths. (March 8th, 2020 is when official counts seem to have started. Hence the retroactive stat. I wanted to compare 1 year of COVID to one year of auto fatalities.)


(525031 * 100) / 28999705 = 1.81047014099% cases are fatal


I'm fairly confident that most people can divide 18 by 6. For those that care, the exact number is 2.93589752593.
