Shocking coronavirus data reveals which day in April will be rocked by most US deaths
More than 2,000 Americans are predicted to die on April 15, according to the University of Washington School Of Medicine. Analysis from the college’s modelling shows that deaths are predicted to rise to 2,271 before decreasing slowly afterwards. Deaths are predicted to drop to less than 100 after June 9.
The model uses data from governments, hospitals and other sources.
It predicts America’s deadliest day will come after two weeks of gradual viral spread.
America’s crisis will allegedly spread into June, with some deaths occurring in July.
The university claims that deaths should be below epidemic levels of 10 per day by the first week of July at the latest.

- US coronavirus: Trump’s Dr Fauci predicts US death toll from COVID 19
President Donald Trump has recently extended social distancing guidelines to April 30.
He had previously hoped for Americans to be “back to work” by April 18.
The initial 15 day period of social distancing urged by the federal government expires Monday.
Dr Anthony Fauci said after Trump’s u-turn that his projection of a potential 100,000 to 200,000 deaths is “entirely conceivable” if not enough is done to mitigate the crisis.
Dr Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, spoke to CNN on Monday about how he convinced Trump to back down from re-opening the country.
He said: “It would not have been a good idea to pull back at a time when you really need to be pressing your foot on the pedal as opposed to on the brakes.
“We showed him the data. He looked at the data. He got it right away,
‘It was a pretty clear picture. Dr Debbie Birx and I went in to the Oval Office and leaned over the desk and said, ‘Here are the data. Take a look.’ He just shook his head and said, ‘I guess we got to do it’.”

- New York coronavirus hell: Makeshift morgues outside hospitals
Coronavirus cases in the US have hit 163,479 as of Tuesday morning.
Of those who contracted the virus, 3,148 have died.
New York remains the most afflicted state, with 67,325 cases and 1,342 deaths.
Six other states have hit over 5,000 cases.
These are New Jersey, California, Michigan, Massachusetts, Florida and Illinois.
The university has also been looking into clinical trials for medication that fights the virus.
In collaboration with New York University Grossman School of Medicine, they’re attempting to determine whether hydroxychloroquine can prevent transmission in people exposed to the virus.
Principal investigator Ruanne Barnabas, associate professor of global health in the University of Washington, is hoping to learn the drugs potency as soon as possible.
She said: “We currently don’t know if hydroxychloroquine works, but we will learn in as short a timeframe as possible what the outcome is.”
