CDC forecasts 400,000 US Covid deaths before Trump’s exit – world news


The #Centers for #Disease #Control and #Prevention now predicts the US will see 400,000 coronavirus deaths by #Jan. 20, when #President #Donald #Trump is to leave office.

The country surpassed 100,000 deaths in #May, and 200,000 four months later. #It passed 300,000 in three months, and 400,000 looks set to take just one month, the CDC determined using a collection of mathematical models. the US has one of the highest mortality ratios of nations hit hardest by the virus, behind only #Italy, #Spain and the U.K., scaled for population.

The predicted pace would mean an additional 65,000 deaths in coming weeks. The numbers are a reminder of the increasing speed with which the virus claims lives in the US, underscoring the urgency of vaccine distribution efforts.
