COVID-19’s fatality rate compared to the flu
Excellent point, dug up by Andrew Flood — the much-cited figure of the seasonal flu as having an IFR of 0.1% is based on the CFR, not the IFR — so the fatality rate for people who are sick enough to be treated in hospital. The true IFR of the seasonal flu is more around 0.05%.
