From the press release:
Anyway, when I was born the largest known prime had 687 digits. Now standing at 22,338,618. Amazing number!
This is an interesting inverse problem. Fortunately, it is well-posed.
I'm sure there's another one even larger just around the corner.

The last sentence says (translated): "It is not known how many prime numbers there are."

I sent them an email (that's the functionality they have to suggest corrections).
What's wrong about it? No one knows how many!
Countably infinite ?
