The Date for the Pandemic’s Peak, State by State

The Big Q: How long will Americans be fighting the Coronavirus?

The Big A: A new virus model favored by the White House indicates the United States is now approaching its peak level of coronavirus infections, and deaths.

Nationally, the worst ravages of this health crisis are expected to arrive on 16 April.

The IHME model projects that on that date alone there will be 3,130 deaths nationwide due to the virus.

The pandemic is peaking at different times in different states.

The IHME says in some states: Colorado, Delaware, Louisiana, Vermont and Washington the worst may be over.

In states where the virus has yet to fully hit, the peak period of contagion may still be 3 wks away.

Health officials warn the only way to save lives is for citizens to continue to carefully observe social-distancing guidelines.

The IHME study assesses 2 key factors: 1) the point of peak strain on the healthcare system, based on metrics such as demand for hospital beds and the need for ventilators, and 2) it reveals the estimated peak in terms of daily reported deaths.

The information on the IHME website gives a state-by-state breakdown of the IHME analysis.
