Random sampling of Miami-Dade County has found that 165,000 residents, about 6% of the population, have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies, which is 15 times greater than the number of confirmed cases in the county (there are just over 30,000 confirmed cases statewide):

The study is being conducted by the University of Miami:

1400 participants were tested over two weeks, with more testing underway:
