Of particular note is their estimation that the number of actual cases is much higher than that of reported cases. While that in itself is pretty much established, the amount by which one exceeds the other is quite shockingly high according to them. We could be closing in on 100 million actual cases Worldwide by the end of June.
This, if true, lends credence to the theory that the disease is much more prevalent than thought and, assuming the death toll is much closer to reality as severe cases get tested, much less deadly than anticipated.

Why is that a surprise. Only few countries have enough testing capacity to even get an idea on the actual numbers of infections, while many countries with big populations only have limited or practically non existing testing capabilities. Nobody talks about it, but Africa alone will probably add millions of infected.
But good news from the USA. trump says there will be no second lockdown: https://www.business-standard.com/artic ... 230_1.html
