  1. Now that NYC has expanded testing to reveal the actual numbers of infected people, it was estimated the death rate is only .5%. So extrapolating from that based on 13 dead in the county, you could estimate the number of actual positive cases to be around 2600, which is a lot of people walking around with the virus. So wear your mask, wash your hands and stay away from people as much as possible.
