This is wonderful news for the American people.
For the second time in four days, a coronavirus projection model heavily relied upon by the White House task force has been updated, again dropping the number of projected deaths and hospitalizations. Less people are going to die than previously thought, according to the Daily Wire.
The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington dropped its estimated death projection on Sunday for the first wave of the pandemic to 81,766 deaths, down from 93,531.
By Wednesday, the projection dropped the estimated total deaths to 60,415, revised down from 81,766 deaths, which was revised from down 93,531, a revised number itself.
According to Alicia Smith, who is a US and European political commentator, wrote on Twitter:
-# of total deaths projected decreased from 81,766 to 60,414
-Projected total bed shortage decreased from 34,654 to 15,852
-Peak hospital usage went from 4/15 to 4/11, peak daily death toll went from 4/16 to 4/12
-Under 200 deaths a day moved from 5/18 to 5/16

Needless to say, this is fabulous news for Americans. The fact that so many people have social distanced over the past few days has caused the number of predicted deaths to drop significantly.
We’re making a difference. And it looks like Trump is right. We’re going to reach “the end of the tunnel” with this pandemic yet. All we have to do is wait, and then we’ll beat this virus and get our economy back on track.
