There is a study going round arguing that most people are already infected with the new coronavirus, and that the CFR is thus very, very low.
The implication is that “hotspots” (e.g. Wuhan, Lombardy, NYC) were figments of our collective imagination.
Or, perhaps more plausibly, it’s just a cope.
thus far, over 100 IgG and IgM test results show no asymptomatic positives in bay area. the only positives we’ve seen are known c19 infections (the test DOES work). broad geography and age bands. new tests being validated and start going out today.
