The Coronavirus pandemic does not show any signs of slowing down. The number of COVID-19 cases is on the rise.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention has produced models to show that if no action were to be taken to slow the spread, the global impact would be staggering. According to one projection, between 160 million and 214 million people in the U.S. could be infected. This can last for months or even a year, experts say. 2.4 million to 21 million people in the U.S. could require hospitalization, potentially crushing the nation’s medical system’s capacity.
