That might be a statistical fluke from China starting to report (rather
than suppress) more data --> and the folks in China receiving poorer
medical care on average.

All these stories seem to assert that the mortality rate is the same or
lower than the Spanish Flu.  However, they only give the lower end of
mortality for the Spanish Flu.  The "Spanish Lady" actually came in
several waves.  The last few waves were more deadly, particularly for
healthy young adults.  I've seen mortality rates quoted from 1% to much
higher.
