According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, as of Tuesday night, there were 1,894 new cases of new coronary pneumonia deaths in the United States on a single day, and a total of 82,246 people died. On Sunday and Monday, no more than 1,000 new deaths occurred on a single day. The latest figures show that the number of deaths on a single day has rebounded sharply. The latest revised mortality model predicts that by the beginning of August, there will be a cumulative total of more than 147,000 people in the United States, nearly 10,000 more than the previous forecast.

According to the report, the University of Washington’s Health Measurement Evaluation Research Center (IHME) recently predicted the number of deaths in early August, reflecting “key elements of virus transmission, such as changes in screening and population mobility, and relaxation of policies to maintain social distance.”

IHME’s prediction models are updated regularly and are often cited by state public health authorities and White House officials. The latest version predicts that by August 4th, the cumulative death toll in the United States will climb to 147,040, which is 9,856 more than the 137,184 predicted on the 10th of this month; The 72,433 people predicted on April 29 were almost double.
