Dr. Neeraj Sood, Vice Dean for Faculty Affairs and
Vice Dean for Research, USC Price School of Public Policy, presented the initial findings of the USC/Los Angeles County Covid19 prevalence study.
“Researchers at the University of Southern California (USC), working in collaboration with the public health department, found that approximately 4.1% of the county’s adult population has antibody to the virus. Taking into account the statistical margin of error, the results indicate that 2.8% to 5.6% of the county’s adult population has antibody to the virus—which translates to approximately 221,000 to 442,000 adults in the county who have had the infection. That is 28 to 55 times higher than the tally of confirmed cases at the time of the study.”
