9.6% according to wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2002%E..._SARS_outbreak

But this number includes all countries. In the US, there were 27 cases and 0 fatality. In Germany, there were 9 cases and 0 fatality. In Mongolia, there were 9 cases and 0 fatality.

After seeing each country's case fatality rate, I believe that it was very much like SARS-CoV-2. If the health system (hospitals etc.) are heavily burdened, the fatality rate increases. In countries where they can treat patients effectively, the fatality rates seem low or there seem to be no fatalities.
