The USA has uncounted cases as well.
My brother died last week. He lived in San Francisco and was in his 60s. He was in poor overall health from a life of excesses. The prior week he apparently had developed a cough and fever. He spent his last weekend holed up alone in his bedroom. The coroner determined his official cause of death was ethanolism and decided not to test his remains for Covid-19. I'm not sure if the people he shared the apartment with have gotten tested.
Yes, I think there are uncounted cases.
Sorry to hear that. My condolences. Yes, there are going to be a ton of uncounted cases.
My wife got sick last Wednesday and I've been sick all week. My symptom was a dry cough that, on Monday and Tuesday at least, I had put down to allergies from working in the yard all weekend. But when she got sick too, I was deathly afraid that I had contracted C19 and given it to her.
Fortunately her doctor was a little more level headed than I, and she landed on a UTI as the possible cause instead. Which, it appears, will almost certainly turn out to be the case based on other symptoms she developed as her antibiotics started to work.
As for my cough, I haven't talked to the doctor about it, but my guess is some kind of respiratory infection. But not C19, since I've had absolutely no other symptoms and it is suppressed pretty readily with a Benadryl.
But in those hours when you don't know... pretty scary stuff.
