The number of coronaviruses continued to rise in at least 18 countries on Saturday – some of whom saw a record or almost a record ups.
The map below shows how the coronavirus numbers last week compared to the previous week.
Remember: Some states may see the number of new cases increase just because more people are being tested.
Increase in hospitalizations: On Monday, Texas reported the largest number of hospitalizations in Covid-19. At least 2,326 people were hospitalized. There were at least 89,108 Covid-19 cases and at least 1,983 deaths in the state.
The model predicts multiple deaths: I a a closely observed coronavirus model which predicts the death of Covid-19, now predicts that by October 1, there will be more than 201,000 deaths in the United States.
Last week, the model, from the Institute of Health Metrics and Assessment at the University of Washington, predicted 170,000 deaths for the same period. The White House has frequently mentioned this model in early pandemics and is one of 19 models currently featured on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
To date, the model predicts that 201,129 people will die from Covid-19 in the U.S. by Oct. 1, with a possible range of 171,551 to 269,395 deaths.
Trump’s testing claims: The model comes Monday when President Donald Trump said that if they stop testing for coronavirus, there will be no cases.
“If you don’t test, you don’t have any cases,” he said. “If we had stopped testing immediately, we would have had very few cases, if any. But we have.”
