The University of Washington has published its forecast for the course of the US coronavirus pandemic – by August, the country will have 145,000 dead.
Researchers at the University of Washington on Monday estimated that 145,728 people could die from COVID-19 in the United States by August, an increase of over 5,000 deaths. The university previously indicated 140,496 deaths from COVID-19.
A new estimate was published the same day that Texas reported maximum hospital admissions; an increase in the number of new confirmed cases was observed in 22 US states.
According to John Hopkins, the states with the highest growth rates were Michigan and Arizona, while Virginia, Rhode Island, and Nebraska showed the largest declines. In the states where mass protests are taking place, a sharp surge in the number of patients is expected.
In the United States, more than 1.9 million cases of COVID-19, a respiratory illness, have been reported, and 110,000 deaths have been officially confirmed to date.
