That implies a pretty significant undercounting of cases among those groups, which would skew this paper's data given that they make up a significant and outsized portion of the Recovered group.
Just my anecdotal experience, but I know a lot of Covid-deniers, and not a single one of them got tested when they had Covid. It makes sense, the average Covid-denier thinks Covid is nothing but the flu, so why would they get tested? The only time you would catch them up in the data is when they end up in the hospital.
