CNN: US hits over 2 million coronavirus cases as expert warns deaths will nearly double by September
Let us know what you think.
The United States now has now surpassed 2 Million COVID-19 cases and 112,000 American deaths:
Since Memorial Day, the number of coronavirus hospitalizations has gone up in at least a dozen states, according to data CNN aggregated from the Covid Tracking Project between May 25 to June 9. They are Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas and Utah. An additional 22 states are trending downward while nine others are holding steady.
As states around the country continue their phases reopening, more than a dozen states are experiencing large surges in COVID-19 cases. If health officials are correct, by September there will be over 200,000 American COVID-19 related deaths:
An additional 100,000 more people will die from coronavirus by September, said Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute.
"I think right now, most Americans are not ready to lock back down, and I completely understand that. Here's the bottom line, though, which is that -- I understand people are willing to live alongside this virus. It means that between 800 and 1,000 Americans are going to die every single day. We're going to get another 100,000 deaths by September ... we really do have to try to figure out how to bring the caseloads down from these scary levels, in some states," Jha told CNN's Kate Bolduan on Wednesday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts between 118,000 and 143,000 coronavirus deaths in the US by June 27.
