As of Saturday, corona cases were still rising in at least 18 states. many of which saw record or almost record high up.
The map below shows how the state’s corona numbers are compared to last week.
I remember: Some states may see the number of new cases increase simply because they are testing more people.
Increased hospitalization: On Monday, Texas reported the highest number of Covid-19 hospitalizations. At least 2,326 people have been treated. There have been at least 89,108 Covid-19 cases and at least 1,983 deaths in the state.
The model predicts more deaths: And one carefully monitored coronavirus model which predicts that Covid-19 deaths now predict that there will be more than 201,000 deaths in the United States by October 1.
Last week, the model from the Institute for Health Measurement and Evaluation at the University of Washington predicted 170,000 deaths over the same period. The model is often cited by the White House at the beginning of the pandemic and is one of 19 models currently appearing on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
As of today, the model predicts that 201,129 people will die from Covid-19 in the United States by October 1, with a possible range of 171,551 to 269,395 deaths.
Trump’s tests claim: The model comes as President Donald Trump said Monday that if they stopped testing coronaio, they would have no chance.
“If you don’t test, you don’t have cases,” he said. “If we stopped testing right now, we would have very few cases, if any. But we do.”
