New Model Projects Cases To Nearly Double

THE U.S. COULD DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF COVID-19 CASES BY JANUARY, ACCORDING TO A NEW MODEL.

(CNN) – COVID-19 isn’t easing its grip on the United States.

A forecasting model from the Washington University in St. Louis predicts the U.S. will pass 20-million cases before the end of January.

This comes as the pandemic has hospitalizations escalating across the nation, including California which has seen ICU admissions rise by 77% within the last two-weeks.

The coronavirus has claimed nearly 258,000 U.S. lives so far.

Many health officials have advised Americans to stay home for the Thanksgiving holiday, but millions are still traveling this week.
