Experts assume higher case numbers
However, experts assume that many Coronavirus cases are not recorded because positive rapid tests are not always followed by a PCR test. Only these are counted in the statistics. In addition, not all health offices report their data on a daily basis; especially on weekends and at the beginning of the week, there may be a delay.
