John Roberts asked Dr. Birx about this:
To John Roberts’ credit, he asked Dr. Birx about this California study during the press briefing and she dodged his questions.
In the first large-scale study of adults tested for COVID-19 antibodies in their blood, initial results show researchers found that 4.1% have the antibodies, an indication that they have already been exposed to the virus.
“That translates to roughly 221,000 to 442,000 adults who have recovered from an infection, once margin of error is taken into account, according to the researchers conducting the study,” the Los Angeles Times reported. “The estimated infection numbers are 28 to 55 times higher than the 7,994 confirmed COVID-19 cases L.A. County had reported at the time of the study in early April.”
The study, conducted by the University of Southern California and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, tested more than 860 people deemed representative of L.A. County, the researchers told The Times.
“It is believed to be as many as 442,000 people in LA County may have been infected, which suggests two things — it suggests that you have a lot more people out there who could be spreading the virus, but it also suggests that the case fatality rate is more in line with the 2017-2018 flu than what we’ve seen in other areas of the world,” Roberts said.
This seems to be the case with the Chinese Coronavirus. If you look at the facts it is hard to be alarmed. The numbers continue to look better and better for Americans.
However, it is the Media that is pushing a lot of hysteria. It is nearly impossible not to listen to the stories from Chinese Coronavirus survivors and not have a knot form in your stomach. It is impossible to listen to healthcare workers on the front lines and not have a knot form in your stomach.
We must stay calm and remember that the numbers are looking better and better each day.
