Right now and for the next while medical and testing resources are stretched too thin saving lives to get a more accurate picture of these hidden Covid-19 deaths. But in the coming months maybe we will learn the answer to your very good point.

    Another hurdle to pass after mass testing is available to all Canadians, is blood samples / testing to see who has been infected.

    Italy has been chatting about Immunity Certificates, which clears those infected, have the anti bodies and can resume work

    Questions arise over how long these antibodies are viable??

    C19 is not going away. It has spread to every population. Fauci motioned it could result in seasonal outbreaks.

    Possibly yes, but I see 1 large issue is literally clearing residents block by block.

    Those that had it, cleared, those that did not stay at home. Massive mobilization of staff to test people- I have problems with people performing and doing their own tests- do not trust them to finagle with blond samples tests as mentioned in the link


    Then we have secondary infections, yet to come.

    Next I think people traveling into Canada will need to have such an immunity certificate

    World travels will be severely interrupted due to outbreaks yet to ravage poor countries

    India- 1.3 B on lock down and no social safety nets. None

    Now to refugee camps for Syrian refugees - Turkey-Greece- Lebanon and inside Syria

    Iran is lying about their numbers and there is significant travel between Iran-Iraq -Syria-Lebanon

    My opinion, millions will die from C19

    An at-home fingerprick blood test may help detect your exposure to coronavirus

    Americans may soon be able to learn if they've ever been infected with COVID-19 with a prick of their finger and a smartphone — and without having to leave their homes.

    A Los Angeles digital healthcare company called Scanwell Health is seeking U.S. government clearance for a kit that lets users submit a scanned image of a blood test to doctors via their phones. Within a few hours, according to the company, the user will learn whether the blood contains antibodies for coronavirus.

    "The entire testing process happens at home," says Scanwell Chief Medical Officer Jack Jeng, "No specimen has to be shipped back."

    A positive test result means a patient has been exposed to COVID-19 at some point in the past and has developed antibodies to fight it.

    Scroll down to the graphs. The bottom one plots recovery vs. deaths on the same graph. Ten days ago the death rate was higher than the recovery rate but now the recovery rate is climbing back up.
    Maybe if we can maintain the protocols we can round the corner on this.
    That is a bit worse than what we have here in Idaho. Canada is a bit over 1 percent and we are a bit under 1 percent death rate.
    The criticism of Trump to say it mildly is not relevant. The man performs his office magnificently. Take a racer at the 500 Indy race. The driver may have womanized. May have boozed and gambled. May have never voted. But man can that driver race.
    Trump is like the winner of the Indy 500.

    The death rate is worst in high-density cities. Comparing Canada, including Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to Idaho is like comparing the USA to Saskatchewan. Is there a city in Idaho with a half-million people? A quarter million? The population density of Idaho is probably not much more than the remote island I live on.
    Canada has a covid death rate of 9 per million. The US rate is 32. But even that is nearly meaningless because of the high density of NYC skewing the average.
    Of course, listening to the rightards here would make you think that's because NYC has Democrats in the city government. You never said anything like that, did you? Have you ever said the virus was worse someplace because of leftists or liberals or Democrats? Because if you have it would forever disqualify your opinions for thoughtful consideration.

    Coronavirus deaths and severe cases by age: What we know - Vox

    The death rate is completely skewed as the denominator is unknown- it is likely much much lower.

    YouTube

    I would really like to understand this notion of 'round the corner'. what is the end game anyway. from what i have been told INSIDE, the hospitals are not busy, medical staff are simply preparing for 'the surge'. complications from the disease seem to be very targeted basically the elderly and preconditions- the rest of us just get sick. unfortunately lockdown was required to change behaviour and prepare the hospitals. i see no reason for an EXTENDED lockdown. poverty and despair cost lives also, today and tomorrow. this is lives vs lives decision not a lives vs $ decision. most lack the perspective that the flu causes about 50k lives in the US and 200-400k globally per annum.
