On November 24th local time, CNN reported that with the deterioration of the COVID-19 situation nationwide in the United States, a model of the University of Washington predicts that the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States will reach 20 million in less than two months.
According to the forecast model of the University of Washington, St. Louis, by January 20 local time, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States may nearly double the current size of about 12.4 million.
The projection comes at a time when the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations is soaring across the United States. Since the beginning of November, the United States has reported more than 3.1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, the largest number of reported cases in a single month in history.
Here are the latest trends and data of COVID-19 in the United States:
New confirmed cases of COVID-19 in 30 states are on the rise. New Mexico has seen a more than 50% increase in confirmed cases in the past week. Only four states have seen a downward trend in new confirmed cases, namely South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Tennessee.
According to the data of the COVID-19 Tracking Project, 85,936 cases of COVID-19 hospitalization were reported in the United States on Monday (23rd).
This is the highest level in the history of this indicator. The number of hospitalizations in the United States is currently breaking the record for 14 consecutive days.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the total number of new confirmed cases in the United States exceeded 1.2 million in seven days for the first time in the past week, with an average of 172,118 new cases per day, the highest since the outbreak.
