The U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates that the number of people who've been infected with the coronavirus in the U.S. might be 10 times higher than the 2.4 million known positive cases of COVID-19. 

CDC Director Robert Redfield told reporters Thursday that millions more Americans could be or at one point have been infected with COVID-19 than has been detected through traditional testing, due to the fact that the virus causes “so much asymptomatic infection.”

In a press briefing, Redfield suggested that for every positive case of coronavirus in the U.S., there might have been about 10 other cases that weren’t detected.
