Canada is at a 3% mortality rate.
USA is at 1.9% - Hispanic and Black Americans are shown to die at a rate of almost three times that of White Americans.

Sweden - Case fatality rate? 6.1%, versus 2.8% in the U.S back in October 8

Important to note:
The probability that someone dies from a disease doesn’t just depend on the disease itself, but also on the treatment they receive, and on the patient’s own ability to recover from it.
This means that the CFR can decrease or increase over time, as responses change; and that it can vary by location and by the characteristics of the infected population, such as age, or sex. For instance, older populations would expect to see a higher CFR from COVID-19 than younger ones.When some people are currently sick and will die of the disease, but have not died yet, the CFR will underestimate the true risk of death. With COVID-19, there are many who are currently sick and will die, but have not yet died. Or, they may die from the disease but be listed as having died from something else. As this paper shows16, CFRs vary widely between countries, from 0.2% in Germany to 7.7% in Italy.

Our numbers would be significantly higher if we had not taken any precautions.
