12:33 AM CT March 27th, 2020 - 104,256 confirmed case in the US.
Model cited by White House says 82,000 people could die from coronavirus by August, even with social distancing
As of Monday morning, it estimates that more than 2,000 people could die each day in the United States in mid-April, when the virus is predicted to hit the country hardest. The model, which is updated regularly, predicts that 224,000 hospital beds -- 61,000 more than we'll have -- will be needed on April 15, when the US is estimated to reach "peak resource use."
Data is lagged by a week from testing a human and getting the test back. We keep hearing that tests are quick and 15 minutes, but not all of the US population has access to these tests. My target will be reached much quicker.
USA confirmed cases 459,851 New cases today as of this time +24,924 Deaths 16,372 new deaths today +1,584 Recovered 24,961
Lets see if it breaks through the 1/3 time fib
@M4m2m0th, By next week I bet we get to 550,000 cases. We might have a slow down of the rate of confirmed cases, but I have no idea on a peak.
The virus will tell us when we peak, not the opening day the government tells us.
I'm thinking the rate is highly dependent on what happens in the next few days. The thing is the cases you are seeing are most likey 5 days behind and as resources become more stressed less tests will be given unless you have severe symptoms. There are simply not enough tests available. I predict we will see a drop in the number of confirmed cases over the next couple of weeks, but a high rate of death increases.
