    Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy: “The American death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic could reach nearly 300,000 by Dec 1, according to a new forecast by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine. The institute has been the source of influential, though not always accurate, models for the American pandemic, and at times has been favored by the White House.” https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/08/forecast-300000-americans-dead-covid-19-december
    (IHME August 6, 2020) “America’s COVID-19 death toll is expected to reach nearly 300,000 by December 1; however, consistent mask-wearing beginning today could save about 70,000 lives, according to new data from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine.” http://www.healthdata.org/news-release/new-ihme-covid-19-forecasts-see-nearly-300000-deaths-december-1

    “US tops 5 million coronavirus cases, continues to lead world in infections and deaths : America also has the world’s-highest death toll of more than 160,000” (Fox News) https://www.foxnews.com/health/us-coronavirus-cases-infections-5-million
    “…Health officials believe the actual number of infections could be 10 times higher, or closer to 50 million, due to testing limitations and the fact that as many as 40% of all those who are infected have no symptoms.
    New cases are being reported at about 54,000 a day. While that number is less than the peak of over 70,000 last month, cases are rising in nearly 20 states, and deaths are climbing in most.”
