|It's not 1% of the world's population. It's 1% percent of cases from around the world. Certain areas have rates that vary, largely due to the circumstances that already exist there--ie general health of the patients, healthcare system, cultural habits, environment, age, cleanliness, etc. Nursing homes that have been affected have higher rates than non nursing home populations. Zip codes are markedly different as well depending on certain environmental factors. Countries are also remarkably different when it comes to this.
What you're doing is taking a number and irresponsibly misusing it to feed into paranoia and anxiety by treating every location the same. Aside from that you have no idea exactly how many people were exposed and have recovered. For all we know, 1% could be a maximum. What we do know is that it is stronger than the flu and it spreads just as easily. But to say it's capable of killing 1% of the world's population is foolish.
