COVID numbers may be larger

In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced antibodies-testing of shoppers at 3,000 supermarkets revealed 13.9 percent of New Yorkers had been infected with COVID-19 but in New York City, that number shot to 21 percent.  That would mean one in five people in the nation's largest city either has or has had the virus.
