US could see 3,000 daily deaths by June as economy reopens: Report

Following on from the earlier post today :

The United States could see up to 3,000 deaths per day from the coronavirus by June 1, according to documents obtained by The New York Times.

As the US government’s pushes to reopen the crippled economy, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data and modelling shows 200,000 infections could be the reality at the start of next month, leading to thousands of daily deaths.

The White House disputed the findings. “This is not a White House document nor has it been presented to the Coronavirus Task Force or gone through interagency vetting,” said spokesman Judd Deere.

“This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force or data that the task force has analysed.”
