COVID-19 Infection Rate


The coronavirus infection rate is much higher than the reported cases in parts of the US. Data from antibody tests in ten different cities and states show that a large number of people with no symptoms may be spreading the virus.


The number of people infected with the coronavirus in the United States ranges from two to thirteen times higher than the reported rates for those regions, according to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This suggests that a large number of people who did not show symptoms or seek medical care may be circulating the virus in their communities. The data reveals that the number of people who have been infected with coronavirus is more than the number of cases reported.

Roughly forty percent of infected persons do not present symptoms but can still transmit the virus to another person. In some areas, the gap between estimated infections and reported cases decreased as the testing capacity and reporting improved. Tracking the numbers of cases can provide crucial insights about the virus’ spread and the region’s ability to manage the virus.


Recent studies have suggested that antibody levels, especially in people with mild or no symptoms, may quickly decline. This means that surveys conducted may only reflect people who were infected within the previous two to three months.
