If you take that assumption you need to put it both in the numerator and the denominator and it cancels out. Because it means that there were 10x more cases but the complications were therefore 10x less likely. Hence why you need to look at a value like %chance of death or %chance of covid complication to decide risk.

Risk in untested (which are probably mild or asymptomatic) could also include long-term unknown complications as well as the risk of transmitting to someone else.
