April 3 (GMT)
Italy: the real number of COVID-19 cases in the country could be 5,000,0000 (compared to the 119,827 confirmed ones) according to a study which polled people with symptoms who have not been tested, and up to 10,000,000 or even 20,0000,000 after taking into account asymptomatic cases, according to Carlo La Vecchia, a Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at the Statale di Milano University.

This number would still be insufficient to reach herd immunity, which would require 2/3 of the population (about 40,000,000 people in Italy) having contracted the virus [source].

The number of deaths could also be underestimated by 3/4 (in Italy as well as in other countries) [source], meaning that the real number of deaths in Italy could be around 60,000.

If these estimates were true, the mortality rate from COVID-19 would be much lower (around 25 times less) than the case fatality rate based solely on laboratory-confirmed cases and deaths, since it would be underestimating cases (the denominator) by a factor of about 1/100 and deaths by a factor of 1/4.
Nothing is certain, it is all a presumption and relatively unimportant. "Lies, damned lies, and statistics"
Wrong - you're thinking of yourself there.

In relation to the coronavirus it is:
Estimates based on science, estimates based on science, and statistics.
My understanding has a full stop.

Harumph, too bloody good for 'em.....

Seriously, a sentence cleaning the bed pans at the local hospital might teach them. Or digging graves.
Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me
