Some interesting stuff about the ACE2 attack vector explaining a lot of the weird symptoms: https://www.ucsf.edu/magazine/covid-body?fbclid=IwAR2T9NdqlshIiYDDj_Xd9U9dt6IInj82CZTwWAbf0Om29-C8NRczXhq3yY0

Thanks for that link. And it looks like I've let myself get behind the information curve.

Is it generally accepted now that 50 to 80 percent of cases are asymptomatic? That is way more than I remember reading from just a few months ago.

No it's not. That one doctor making that assumption based on that one antibody study in the SF Mission District. The CDC's "best guess", which they don't explain/justify, is 40%. That could be based on testing results in places like V, Italy, where most of the population has been tested multiple times and about 40% were asymptomatic.

Edit: here's a review of various studies that measured asymptomatic people:
