  • The official count of coronavirus infections in the United States sits at about 70,000 cases, but a chronic shortage of tests means only a fraction of the people infected are being counted.
  • In the Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,115 Americans conducted March 16 and 17, about 1% said they were infected.
  • David Cates, director of behavioral health at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, was intrigued by the results.
