Death Tolls Might Rise Over 400,000 In The US By The Next Year
As of now, more than 188k people have died due to COVID-19 in the United States.
In the next four months, these numbers cand. Analysing with the graphs, the critical model predicts the death of around 410k people due to coronavirus before next year. The model is created at the University of Washington by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
They posted an update Friday. This vast number is a matter of concern for US citizens as well as the government. Also, according to Johns Hopkins University, the number of new cases has decreased, but the death toll continues to rise.
Explaining the graph:
You can see three scenarios in the graph: worst-case, most-likely and the best-case method. The chart shows that the use of universal masks can avoid a significant number of these deaths. The situation can also get worse if the people keep a casual attitude about it or if the government removes all the restrictions.
Earlier this year, in June, IHME had predicted that the death tolls would rise to 200k in October. They had predicted much ahead of their time, and thus many people disapproved of believing what the told. Well, it seems that they were very accurate.
A course of action to be taken:
The director of IHME, Christopher Murray, told that we all must learn from the leaders of the nation where they prevented the loss of like by taking some swift actions. The lack of data has limited their predictions about the type of social distancing practice that can be the most effective.
The course of action of the government and people will be the most critical factor in determining the deaths that the virus can cause. The people must follow all the safety guidelines to protect themselves as well as their fellow citizens.
