Yeah, a lot of us guessed that was the case a long time ago, but they have evidences.
The way that's worded is confusing to me. Can't you estimate the prevalence in the population from the serology testing alone?
So unnamed "senior administration officials" briefed "a small group of reporters" for this story. Why not go on the record?
The NPR story Atheist linked names Redfield
Redfield estimates that between 5% and 8% of the U.S. population has been exposed. He points to results from communitywide antibody tests and other surveillance measures that point to this range.
Comes out to an IFR of between .4 and .7%
