January 15th, local time, according to a CNN report, according to the COVID-19 model of the Institute of Health Indicators and Assessments of the University of Washington
about 22% of the U.S. population has been infected with the novel coronavirus, and the United States will add 1 new one by May 1 due to the impact of the spread of mutant COVID-19.
92,000 COVID-19 deaths, with the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States expected to reach 566,720 at that time.
The media noted that the results of the projections were similar to those published by the Institute on December 23, 2020.
The Institute then projected that the death toll would reach 567,000 by May 1, 2021, and could peak in early February.
At the same time, the forecast also shows that if the vaccination process is accelerated, the total number of projected deaths from COVID-19 can be reduced to 553,000, while the continuation of existing protective measures will further reduce this number to 535,000.
