WHile for some inexplicable reason we have never been given an established fatality rate for COVID-19, let's assume the rate is about the 1% that seems to be widely used.

According to John Hopkins, the US has seen 136,671 confirmed CV deaths (this does not include a large number of presumed, but not confirmed, deaths)

The number of infected cases reported is 3,291,786 or about 1% of our population

Using 1% fatality rate, the number should be about 13,667,000 or about 4% of our population
