Am I correct to assume that infection numbers are a lot higher than reported and deaths are lower, therefore mortality rate is thus way lower than reported?
It seems common sense that cases are a lot higher simply because we haven’t tested everybody and because the test came about a lot later than when people started getting infected.
And as for death numbers, apparently a lot of deaths were reported as COVID deaths before we even had a test and were reported only based on the symptoms.
And I’m not the only one saying this. Elon Musk was saying we need to look at the data because current data is screwed and unreliable.
Please correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

Yes I wonder if someone is studying this and maybe there’s some data somewhere.

Is there a rise in cases because there is a rise in testing? Or is that wrong? Please explain. Thank you.

He is a celebrity and an engineer, so probably knows data much better than you and I.
