Statistics from Johns Hopkins University in the United States show that more than 860,000 people in the United States have been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, and nearly 50,000 people have died. New York State has the most severe epidemic. The first stage of the new coronavirus antibody test has shown that as many as 2.7 million people in the state have been infected with the new coronavirus, which is 10 times more than the number of confirmed diagnoses in the state. Vice President Pence expected the epidemic to be almost completed in the summer.

The study was conducted at 40 locations in 19 counties in New York State. About 3,000 volunteers were randomly selected for the new coronavirus antibody test, of which about 1,300 were in New York City. The results showed that about 13.9% of the subjects in the state had antibodies, compared with about 21.2% in New York City alone. Governor Como said that if the results are accurate and reflect the overall situation, it means that about 2.7 million people in New York State have been infected with the new coronavirus.

Como also pointed out that if the number of infections is similar to the initial antibody test, according to the current death toll of nearly 20,000 in New York State, the case fatality rate is about 0.5%. He warned that official deaths do not count family deaths and other “probable” cases, and there is uncertainty about mortality.

However, President Trump and Vice President Pence pointed out that New York, New Jersey and other hard-hit areas have passed the peak of the epidemic, and the epidemic is expected to end soon.
