Putting the Risk of Covid-19 in Perspective

This author puts the risks of dying from COVID-19 into a metric called "micromort", which measures a one-in-a-million chance of dying. The micromorts allows one to easily compare for example the risk of dying from skydiving (7 micromorts per jump), or dying under general anesthesia (5 micromorts).
