The fatality rate is nearly three percent higher in the city of Wuhan in Hubei province, where the virus originated, which has a rate of 4.9 percent.
Excepting cases in Hubei, the mortality rate drops down to 0.16 percent, bringing it much closer to the flu.
A separate tracker from coronavirus.app revealed 701 people have recovered from the disease, assigning it a recovery rate of 3.39 percent.
The latest coronavirus is not the first to have caused global panic, as another member of the family, SARS, circulated the world from China in 2002-2003.
Compared to SARS, which had a mortality rate of 9.6 percent, 2019-nCoV is much less deadly.
