The study didn't say that 40 times as many were asymptomatic, just that 40 times as many were infected as had tested positive. Given that at least some parts of California didn't test people unless their symptoms were sufficient to require hospitalization, the number of symptomatic people was undoubtedly several times the number of the number of confirmed cases.
