Using influenza surveillance networks to estimate state-specific prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 in the United States

Detection of SARS-CoV-2 infections to date has relied heavily on RT-PCR testing. However, limited test availability, high false-negative rates, and the existence of asymptomatic or sub-clinical infections have resulted in an under-counting of the true prevalence of SARS-CoV-2.



TL;DR version from CNN:

Study suggests 80% of Covid-19 cases in the US went undetected in March

"The findings support a scenario where more than 8.7 million new SARS-CoV-2 infections appeared in the U.S. during March and estimate that more than 80% of these cases remained unidentified as the outbreak rapidly spread," Justin Silverman of Penn State University, Alex Washburne of Montana State University and colleagues at Cornell University and elsewhere, wrote.

So yea the lockdown actually did make a huge impact on the spread of the virus but we didn't (and still don't) have the capacity to properly test for it

From QZ "20 questions to ask instead of how are you doing"
    *    How are you taking care of yourself today?
    *    What part of your shelter-in-place residence have you come to appreciate the most?
    *    What surprising thing have you been stocking up on (that isn’t toilet paper)?
    *    What’s a story – from a book, a movie, an article, a conversation – that you’ve been gripped by recently? Why did it capture you?
    *    What habit have you started, or broken, during the quarantine?
    *    Which specific place in your neighborhood are you most looking forward to visiting once this is all over?
    *    What’s the easiest part about the quarantine?
    *    What are some things you have realized that you don’t really need?
    *    What’s something you own that feels useful?
    *    What is your Covid-19 nickname/alter-ego?
    *    What problem—either yours, or something more global —do you wish you could solve?

    *    What’s something that you miss that surprises you? What’s something that you don’t miss that surprises you?
    *    Which member of your family/ friend group have you been thinking about the most during this time? Why?
    *    What’s the most generous act you’ve seen recently?
    *    What’s the last thing you experienced that made you laugh, or cry?
    *    What times of the day or the week are hardest?
    *    What’s giving you hope right now?
    *    What’s the best thing that happened to you today?
    *    How do you want this experience to change you? How do you think it will?
    *    What do you hope we all learn or take away from this experience?

Of course, China's probably not the only country with data issues - how many of the above are under-reporting?

India has been parabolic for months but they only recently broke the US record for number of new cases in a single day

They are going to have more cases than Brazil in the next couple days and more cases than the US within a couple weeks if this keeps up
