(CNN)Two coronavirus studies released Friday -- one involving almost 2,000 people from Florida and the other from a Washington state nursing home -- came to the same conclusion: Many of the people who tested positive for the virus didn't know it they had it because they showed no symptoms.

Miami-Dade County and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine conducted a random antibody testing study of the county's 2. 75 million residents, with about 1,800 people participating, Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez said Friday during a news conference.

The data showed 6% of the people in the study tested positive for Covid-19 antibodies, which extrapolates to around 165,000 residents, Gimenez said.

According to Gimenez, the study's researchers are 95% certain that the true number of people infected in Miami-Dade County is between 4. 4% and 7. 9%, or between 123,000 and 221,000 people.

In the study released Friday, more than half of the residents at a nursing home tested positive for coronavirus without showing symptoms.

But in this study, researchers found that more than two-thirds of people were giving off live, infectious virus when they tested positive before showing symptoms.
