Study Finds At Least 2 Million Americans Called Out Sick From Work in April

New research may provide more insight into how many Americans were sickened by COVID-19.

The research pertains to the earliest days of the pandemic when access to testing was more limited.

It estimated that at least 2 million people called out from work due to illness in mid-April.

However, only an estimated 920,000 people called out sick in April 2019 reports Gizmodo.

The spike in work absenteeism lines up with the smaller recorded spikes of cases and hospitalizations.
