"On the other hand, among those who did have the illness (based on symptoms), it would appear that overall greater than 70% of them developed antibodies"
Unless im reading it wrong, many did not get tested for Covid19 and only had Symptoms.
I agree that it isn't reflective of the broader population, but one could argue that those same numbers would be reflected among the asymptomatic.
Which numbers? 100% of people who were positive with Corona are positive on the Roche antibodies test.
I'm not sure whoever wrote that article actually understood what he's trying to say, but he seems to claim from all of the 3500 in the survey with presumed Covid, seemingly defined by having symptoms, 70% had antibodies, which means 30% never had Corona. What exactly can you extrapolate from that to asymptomatic patients?

Thanks for clarifying, the article could use some proof reading.
What is the sample size? what is the current population for Crown Heights?

A neighbor got a call today from the Ocean County Health Department. He was informed that he had tested positive and they wanted to do contact tracing. He tested positive alright, two weeks before Pesach! It took them 7 weeks to call him to contact trace. Governor Murphy’s contact tracing plan is going to be a lot of fun.

Just a sign of how government works.. although, contract tracing is just starting so we should give them some time to see if they actually do half a job

Was he also one of the newly reported positive cases in Ocean County?

No way to know but I highly doubt it took that long to be reported to OCHD. Just took forever for them to act on it.

Crazy, some ppl still have faith in our government.

If they would have positive # in the single digit range, then I hear,  they stand a chance but at this point, really.

It's all for the image and media.

Can someone explain how Russia has 252,245 Cases 3rd most in the world but only 2,305 Deaths?

It's really very simple. There's no corruption in Russia.

1. Rules about how they define COVID-19 deaths (vs. attributing to other factors)
2. Many rich people getting tested with mild symptoms, poor people not having access to tests, so some die without a test and some die after testing positive and thus count
3. They’re late to the party and some of those who tested positive won’t make it...
