Virus Model Predicts 224K Deaths by November

Virus Model Predicts 224K Deaths by November
"A widely-cited coronavirus model has upped its death projection to more than 224,000 fatalities by November. The U.S. death toll currently stands at more than 136,000, meaning that the nation will see roughly 88,000 additional fatalities over the next three and a half months if the prediction plays out. Read more."

"However, if 95% of people in the U.S. wore masks while in public spaces, IHME predicts that approximately 40,000 lives would be saved."

"In Florida, which has been called the new epicenter for the virus in the U.S., the death toll is expected to reach 19,000 by November. The state currently reports about 4,500 fatalities from the virus."
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday urged Americans to wear masks in an editorial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association."
