Coronavirus Model Predicts 224,000 Deaths by November

A widely cited coronavirus model has upped its death projection to more than 224,000 fatalities by November.

The U.S. death toll currently stands at more than 136,000, meaning that the nation will see roughly 88,000 additional fatalities over the next three and half months if the prediction plays out.

The previous update from the model, which is run by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, predicted approximately 16,000 fewer deaths by Nov. 1. The jump in the newest estimate is due to widespread new infections and an upswing in hospitalizations, according to IHME.

In Florida, which has been called the new epicenter for the virus in the U.S., the death toll is expected to reach 19,000 by November. The state currently reports about 4,500 fatalities from the virus.

Guess that's why Dumbass wants to suppress the data.

1. The predictions from this model has consistently underestimated the number of deaths

Which is why the White House frequently sited it in the early weeks when it was projecting 30k deaths. Mainly, it was hard to factor in the stupidity of Trump, MAGAs everywhere, and Republican governors that ensured that this was going to get out of control.

It is constantly having to revise the numbers upward.

2. Oh, FFS. IHME. The group that insisted for months the death toll would be 60,000.

THEY ARE USELESS! When are people going to stop listening to them??

3. I think it will hit 224k well before that. We're approaching 1k per day again

And should rocket past that next week, unfortunately.
