A new projection from the Institute of Health Metrics and Assessment (IHME) at the University of Washington School of Medicine shows that about 115,000 new deaths from COVID-19 will be added in the United States in the next month.
The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States exceeded 20 million on January 1, reaching 20136,701, and the number of deaths from COVID-19 reached 347,870.
So far, the number of coronavirus infections and the number of deaths in the United States are the first in the world, and the number of infections and deaths are the highest in the world.
According to the data of the COVID-19 Tracking Project in the United States, December is the fastest month for new COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations in the United States so far.
But American experts worry that the worst may not be over yet. In the coming weeks after Americans travel and gather during the holidays, despite the advice of health experts, the United States may see more new cases, and the number of coronavirus hospitalizations and coronavirus deaths may increase further.
American infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci also said earlier this week that the surge in cases in the United States has been “out of control” and may be even worse in the coming weeks.
