I would recommend trying to calculate a rate difference with 99% confidence intervals. If you are feeling a little more adventurous you should check out the Bayesian version of this approach in order to get an actual probability related to a non-null hypothesis.

However, if you are truly dealing with populations, you don't need to conduct any tests at all, the difference in rates is all you need to make a conclusion - since there is not sampling variability - you have the true values!

However, i would go back to the idea that no statistics are needed if this is the true confirmed case fatality rate between these two POPULATIONS, since there is no sampling going on. Given this, your solution would be a difference in case fatalities of 0.00016.
