Amazon recently revealed that 19,816 of its US Amazon and Whole Foods Market front-line employees have tested positive for Covid-19, equating to 1.44% of the company's 1.37 million workers. The company made a quarterly profit of $5.2 billion, in the three months ending in June.

"We compared COVID-19 case rates to the general population, as reported by Johns Hopkins University for the same period, accounting for geography and the age composition of our employees to make the data as accurate as possible. Based on this analysis, if the rate among Amazon and Whole Foods Market employees were the same as it is for the general population rate, we estimate that we would have seen 33,952 cases among our workforce," the company wrote in a blog post.

Professor from John Hopkins University claims that number of US Covid-19 cases is higher than announced

Dr. Marty Makary from the John Hopkins University claims that for every person that has been positively tested for the coronavirus, multiple untested but infected people are out there. He thinks that the US has between "50,000 and half a million cases". Even his lowest estimation is way higher than the official number of over 1,600 confirmed cases. He also criticizes the CDC - the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - for not rolling out the testing fast enough and even using the wrong testing system.
