History’s Deadliest Viruses Illustrated to Scale #infographic

Pandemics are nothing new, there's been quite a few occasions in history when a virus has ended up being lethal enough to cause hysteria on a global scale. The Ebolavirus is a major one that many have in mind but what about other lesser-known viruses that are just as deadly? Every year, the Dengue virus has a death toll of 22,000 people around the world, or the Rotavirus that kills an estimated 450,000 children every year!

The CEUFast.com chart ranks among the deadliest viruses in history based on their mortality rate, with rabies remaining at the top of the list at 100 percent if the disease is not treated immediately. Luckily, the rabies virus has a vaccine, but for many of those lethal viruses that take thousands of lives each year, the same can not be said. Why does the modern Coronavirus that is currently causing a pandemic worldwide compare with other viruses in terms of how lethal it is?
