Every AV is losing.   That’s why we’re working on alternative things at the same time.

Obviously going to disagree. We are pushing almost a thousand pieces of detection
every four hours now, and that will only increase from here.

1,000,000 unique submissions per day vs. 6000 "pieces of detection" per day.  If that is
"apples" to "apples" then I'd have to say ClamAV is losing the war.  If, on the
other hand, every "piece of detection" hits 200 samples then you are winning!

But based upon the lack of hits in my quarantine folder I would have to conclude
that it is a losing battle at the moment.
