A new study out of Germany using antibody testing shows that the coronavirus may not be as fatal as once previously thought. The study focused on one of the hardest hit regions in Germany called Heinsberg. It found that 15 percent of the population had antibodies for the virus in this area, suggesting that they had the disease already, with a mortality rate of 0.37 percent. That’s less than one-fifth of the mortality rate considered in Germany as a whole.
