It isn't that easy.

The big problem is as you mention the missing statistics, not everyone is tested.
Italy for example has tested five people for every sick found, and compare that to South Korea that has tested 37 people for every sick found.

You can easily assume that the Korean statistics are better, because they have also found most of the people that wasn't very sick and needed to go to hospital.
Their figures are suggesting a mortality rate closer to 0.7%. China outside of Wuhan has similar numbers. (0.8%)

The similarity between Italy and Wuhan isn't only that they haven't had the possibility to test everyone, but also that in both cases the healthcare system was overwhelmed. More people have died because they haven't received adequate care.

This isn't the case, yet, in most other countries. So here we are rather seeing the problem with poor testing.

BTW. If you want some pre crunched data of better quality I can recommend this page: Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) – Statistics and Research - Our World in Data[^]

The most interesting part being this diagram[^]
