If you're referring to the study I think you are, that's not necessarily what it said. It said a 9% of a US population sample from July tested positive for antibodies.

It was plausible back when they were at 2% positivity rates and less than 1,000 daily cases. At 20,000 daily cases and positivity approaching 10%, there's no way.

First off the website I looked at was reporting testing capacity in the UK which I incorrectly interpreted as tests performed. So I used 200,000 in the July/August period vs 300,000 now, when it...

It's important to understand the purpose of testing and point of using different types of tests. It's also dangerous to draw conclusions from what seems like very accurate tests.
