What fascinates me right now is how the media keeps harping about, "Covid-19 hospitalizations are spiking!" when what's actually happening, in many cases, is that the hospital took a patient for something else - elective surgeries which were postponed for the pandemic, for example - then ran a Covid-19 test on them as a matter of routine, found an asymptomatic positive result, and TA DAAAAHH!!! The guy who came in for knee surgery is now "a coronavirus hospitalization".Pretty much, if any of them dies. It's because of corona. No matter what killed you.They keep track of REPORTED cases that have a conclusion, recovery or death.How do you know how many settled cases there are? For you to make that moronic claim you have to assume everyone who got infected was tested.we don't have 2.4 million SETTLED cases! You can only accurately calculate the death rate by using settled cases. It is moronic to assume that NOT ONE of the 1.5 million unsettled cases will die!Oh, so we don't have 2.4 million cases.Tramp's CDC lies!Then the CDC is saying the death rate is .005%The CDC is saying the actual number of cases is 10 times greater than reported.Radical Right-wing Commie Red State blog never tells the truth!4.61%.

Recovered / Discharged
"The number of people in the United States who have been infected with the coronavirus is likely to be 10 times as high as the 2.4 million confirmed cases, based on antibody tests, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.
CDC Director Robert Redfield’s estimate, shared with reporters in a conference call, indicates that at least 24 million Americans have been infected so far."
the actual data shows a USA death rate of 10%
By your same logic the dead can be undercounted if they were not tested, so you do the calculations for the reported cases and extrapolate from that for unreported and unsettled cases.
