Projected death rates rise



Updated June 13, 2020

Expected U.S. death toll jumps

    The U.S. has the most COVID-19 cases and the most deaths of any country in the world. The two hardest-hit states have been New York and New Jersey.

The projected US coronavirus death toll has doubled to 134,000.

A new model was released for the first time since states started reopening. It shows the number of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. doubling to 134,475 by August 4.

 In Texas, the projection is 3,632. That’s all according to researchers at The Institute for Health Metrics at the University of Washington. 

However, Houston Dr. Peter Hotez, with Baylor College of Medicine, thinks social distancing needs to expand. "The models say we need to go into June with social distancing to go back into what’s called containment mode," Hotez said. 

On the other side of the globe, China, where the coronavirus started, has listed the death number at 4,645. Few people believe that number. It's likely far higher.

Germany and Greece have significantly lower per-capita mortality rates than the United States. In East Asia and the Pacific region, Australia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand were all able to keep their COVID-19 fatalities below seven deaths per million residents. 

Vietnam, with a population of 96 million, has no reported deaths at all. 

Even as data shows that the U.S. has about 2.05 million cases and 114,627 deaths as of Saturday, the U.S. continues to ease lock-down measures, and that could push the numbers much higher.
