Based on results of the first round of testing, the research team estimates that approximately 4.1% of the county's adult population has antibody to the virus. Adjusting this estimate for statistical margin of error implies about 2.8% to 5.6% of the county's adult population has antibody to the virus- which translates to approximately 221,000 to 442,000 adults in the county who have had the infection. That estimate is 28 to 55 times higher than the 7,994 confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported to the county by the time of the study in early April. The number of COVID-related deaths in the county has now surpassed 600.

There have been several studies that have recently been completed that suggest that covid 19 is far more wide spread than previously thought

This is exciting news. If the virus is more widespread then the associated death rate would need to be adjusted so the public would realize that there is less to fear from this virus.

I don't think that we can minimize this event since there have been over 40,000 deaths in the US alone but I do think this study should give us some hope.

Well now we know why the MSN has started trashing the accuracy of these tests.

A Stockholm blood bank found that 11% of donors had the coronavirus antibodies -- with a test that's 70-80% accurate.

Sweden went for herd immunity. If the numbers from that study are even halfway accurate, then we aren't that far off where Sweden is. That means we basically trashed our economy for nothing.

Not like it was in a good place before...

Essential workers, can barely afford essential things.

And now an important fact is highlighted, there is a HUGE divide between, what is considered "living wage" and what is a "living wage"...

Yep.
There is a thread right here on ATS discussing the CDC admitting the tests were "tainted"
With....

Wait for it....

Taking their medium (221,000 to 442,000 with antibodies and 600 deaths) suggests a death rate of 0.2%. Death rate from seasonal flu (50,000 die in US from flu each season) is typically around 0.1%. But if covid-19 spreads 200% more easily than flu, we may have seen at least 200,000 people die from covid-19 in US if they didn't take measures to contain the outbreak. Thats if, the deaths attributed to covid-19 are accurate.

Inside the body there are viral contaminants placed there by Bacteria.....the viral contaminants are covered in a layer of fat or a "wet scab" by the body as its defense mechanism….so whats "inside" a "viral capsule" is simply a PARTICULAR SIZE OF CONTAMINATE THAT CAN GO SPECIFIC PLACES IN THE BODY... ITS MERELY A CONTAMINATE....its not its own entity.....researchers can delineate these "viral contaminate capsules".....they cannot be denied but they can be lied about….now here is the sweet kiss of reality.....there are LIVING BACTERIA CALLED PLEOMORPHIC BACTERIA and they are also found in the body in the exact same places as the dead viral contaminants encased in the "wet scab"....these living bacteria ALSO HAVE A LIPID FAT OUTER CASING AND THEY ARE MIMICING THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE VIRAL CONTAMINATS ALREADY IN THE BODY WHICH WERE CREATED BY they themselves WHILE IN THEIR BACTERIAL SIZE AND SHAPE.....

Whats in the body in traditional looking and behaving Bacterial form is also living in the body simultaneously in traditional looking and behaving viral contaminate form with the added benefits of the logistical and physical requirements/mechanics of a living entity(its not inert like a "viral contaminate capsule is" it is alive and gathering external resources to live and generating byproducts of that life and life-cycle.") …...and even being re-introduced into the body in a viral sized activated form in Covid-19 which triggers a massive internal morphing and migration of related but quiet insitu bacteria from belly to bloodstream .....

A vaccine is a fraud...completely...….they put bacterial waste from fecal deposits and from dead bacterial corpses inside of vaccines.....there is no such thing as a "virus" as an entity unto itself.They use a similar Template within their processes to structure the Tests....lol....lol...they are trying to build a vaccine for this but cannot because the viral sized components of their fraudulent vaccines are identical to the bacterial relatives that are morphed into viral contaminate size in some cases and are already insitu in the belly of most people....lol...lol...lol..this is hilarious .

The Great Virus Lie...has...well its backfired upon them.

What this data is saying is that Covid-19 is a Bacterial issue disguised as a viral issue...and is presenting simultaneously in both forms.

Personally, I'd be very happy if this virus is not as deadly as first reported.

I'm in a demographic that does not do well with this virus.

Also, they need to do this type of study in New York. New York has a huge number of people been tested in the hospital. Does this mean that there are 50 times as many people who had mild or no symptom? New York has 252,000 confirmed cases. That would mean that there are 10 million people that have the antibodies in New York alone

95% of people in NY have the Anti-bodies in them already lol lol...because they already have a Bacterial form relative of the viral contaminate sized living Pleomorphic Bacteria disguised in viral size called Covid-19 in its traditional Bacterial form insitu inside them.The person being tested for the so-called viral anti-bodies ALREADY had them inside their body BEFORE they contracted Covid-19...because Covid-19 is just a gut bacteria that has morphed and went into the bloodstream in viral contaminate size to be expelled ALIVE instead of dead like other viral sized pieces of dead material... people are getting something hey have already got....lol....lol...lol...do you understand now?The nasty magic of the un-policed Pleomorphic Bacteria?

Well hurp durr, seeing as how its been around and circulating for longer than the lockdown. Lots of folks, the WIfe and I included, had it long ago and still have to deal with the consequences of this lockdown.

That won't happen, because it's about control, not safety.

They're making too much headway with this fiasco to give it up too quickly, before they change a few things for the worse...

Is a COVID-19 antibody different from the others?

Do all coronavirus antibodies test the same?

How about common cold antibodies?

CDC’s failed coronavirus tests were tainted with coronavirus, feds confirm


As the new coronavirus took root across America, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent states tainted test kits in early February that were themselves seeded with the virus, federal officials have confirmed.

The contamination made the tests uninterpretable, and—because testing is crucial for containment efforts—it lost the country invaluable time to get ahead of the advancing pandemic.

The CDC had been vague about what went wrong with the tests, initially only saying that “a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents” had led to the failure. Subsequent reporting suggested that the problem was with a negative control—that is, a part of the test meant to be free of any trace of the coronavirus as a critical reference for confirming that the test was working properly overall.

Now, according to investigation results reported by The New York Times, federal officials confirm that sloppy laboratory practices at two of three CDC labs involved in the tests’ creation led to contamination of the tests and their uninterpretable results.

This does beg the question is this test picking up some variant of the covid virus and not covid 19

Alternatively, they could also have found a cluster and sampled to many people in the cluster thus skewing the results

As always, more tests are needed.

Every single one of us is infected with something.

All you have to do is keep digging.

Not every one of us is infected all the time....however every one of us is infected from time to time ..some of us regularly police the core value threat that is found with Covid-19 and by simply keeping our tummies clean and balanced all we will ever get is a sniffeling cold or 24hr flu.

Does it ever bother you that you toss out your under informed opinions as if it is 100% fact based? You make these affirmations as if you're involved in the research and you aren't. You're just typing up worthless krunk and pretending its a fact with no bearing on the subject matter being discussed or the science involved.
