There will never be a way to come up with an exact figure


But that doesn't mean one can't make a reasonable estimates based on the information we have. That's the difference between cswilliam's analysis and CurtisB's. The former is based on facts and data, whereas the latter is not. CurtisB is floating baseless theories to downplay the toll of this virus. You already pointed out that the NYC numbers alone show that this virus is far more deadly than the flu, but because no one can say exactly what the rate is with 100% certainty, he uses that uncertainty to downplay and float BS theories that the rate is lower than it possibly could be. We will always have imperfect information, but that doesn't excuse nakedly political attempts to muddy the waters ehen people are dying at unprecedented rates.
