What is the true infection fatality rate of COVID-19?

Source: Economisch Statistische Berichten

The chart prepared by the Economisch Statistische Berichten (ESB), a Dutch economics magazine, quantifies the infection fatality rate for the Dutch population based on age bracket. The data were calculated from an antibody test of 4,000 blood donors conducted by Dutch blood bank Sanquin to see how many have been infected for the purpose of donating blood plasma to those currently suffering from the virus.

The data were presented to the Dutch House of Representatives in mid-April by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
