Coronavirus Analysis and Updates: Number of reported COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. is doubling every 2.7 days
The total number of global cases has passed one million, including more than 53,000 fatalities. Over 218,000 patients are reported to have recovered. According to analysis done by Brian McNoldy, a Senior Research Associate at University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School, as of Friday morning, the number of reported COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. is doubling every 2.7 days in the United States. McNoldy’s daily count values are based on data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
Going by McNoldy’s projection, does that mean the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. will reach 1 million before the end of April?
April 3 #COVID19 update… it has now been 1 month since the US had its first 100 confirmed cases, and just 7 deaths. As of Friday morning, those numbers are now 246,000 and 6,100. The number of deaths is doubling every 2.7 days. https://t.co/ETNO8aFiAg #coronavirus #SARS_COV_2 pic.twitter.com/iLTz3lRlk0
