By now, most Americans have heard about the new coronavirus that is sweeping through their communities, the spread of which has caused tens of thousands of deaths and forced many more to be hospitalized.
A new outbreak of the virus is spreading faster than the world can absorb it.
But for the millions of Americans who have not yet experienced the symptoms, and who are also at high risk of contracting the disease, the real impact of this pandemic has been largely invisible.
A few days ago, the CDC released its first-ever estimate of the number of Americans currently living with COVID-19, the first of a series of official estimates that will provide a snapshot of the full number of people who have contracted the virus.
But there is a lot more to learn about the pandemic than that, and it will likely take more than just a single official estimate to provide a better picture of the impact of the pandemics on the lives of Americans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been working to produce official estimates of COVID outbreaks for nearly three years, and they have been making the most of the unprecedented scope of the situation.
As a result, the agency’s projections have produced some interesting insights into how the virus has changed the lives and health of the country.
But the agency has also made some major mistakes.
Its first estimate, released in August, was based on a narrow range of data, and a number of other groups, including researchers, have since said they should have used more expansive estimates.
The data the CDC used was far from comprehensive, and the researchers who worked on the project had limited ability to accurately analyze the data, so their estimates often differed wildly from one another.
“The agency is really trying to get a handle on this and the data it’s using, but it’s just not clear what the real situation is,” said Stephen Sanger, a professor of epidemiology at the University of California, Berkeley.
In addition, the estimates of the numbers of COVE-19 cases that are currently in the field have not been adjusted to take into account the rapid spread of the disease.
For example, in February, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that its estimates of total COVID cases in the world had fallen by nearly a third from an earlier estimate of 1.3 million in 2016.
The number of COV-19 deaths has continued to climb, and has exceeded 1.4 million in 2017, according to the CDC.
It is important to note that the CDC is not reporting any cases of COFFE-19 to the public.
For a more detailed discussion of the errors and shortcomings in the COVID data used by the CDC, we turned to the experts.
Andrew M. Stoll, a senior fellow at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the Brookings Institution, said that the new data from the CDC that was released last month showed a significant difference in the data on COVID deaths.
For one thing, he said, the new CDC estimate of COFE-19 death rates is “more accurate” because it has included data from a number that is “much smaller, and in many cases it is much lower than previously reported.”
But, he added, the number for COVID infection rates is still “very high” because “it’s an incredibly large number.”
For example: The new CDC figure for the number who died from COVID during the first five days of the coronaviral pandemic was 7,099.
That number is a significant drop from the previous estimate of 2,717 deaths, because the number that the WHO used was much smaller than what was in the new study.
But while Stoll noted that the number is still a significant underestimate, the overall impact of COVI-19 has been minimal.
As the CDC report said, COVE deaths have decreased “because of reduced reporting, greater awareness of COVAVID-20, and increased infection prevention measures.”
“It’s hard to overstate how important the pandepic has been to the United States,” said David L. Fathi, director of the Center on Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, in a statement.
“We are now in the middle of a public health crisis that has already had a significant impact on the economy and lives of millions of people.”
