The Covid-19 outbreak in Los Angeles County could be up to 55 times bigger than the number of confirmed cases, according to new research from the University of Southern California and the LA Department of Public Health.
The data, if correct, would mean that the county’s fatality rate is lower than originally thought.
With just 4 percent of the population infected with the disease, LA County is still very early in the epidemic, said USC professor Neeraj Sood, who led the study.
