1 Million in U.S. infected with COVID-19 by May, projected data shows


Share post:

COVID-19 case counts in the U.S. are projected to rise over one million people by May 1st.

Just one month ago, on March 22nd, the U.S. had only 33,404 cases, according to the CDC. The U.S. is thought to be in the middle of a peak of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The projections come by utilizing historical data collected by the CDC and John Hopkins University. Despite using conservative estimates, the data shows the U.S. will top 1 million total COVID-19 cases by May 1st. This despite loose recommendations issued at the Federal level, including the ‘Slow the Spread’ campaign.

There is no Nationwide Lockdown in effect as of Sunday.  

On Tuesday, 42 States had Lockdowns in the U.S.

Among them, Utah, Wyoming, and Oklahoma had partial lockdown with individual cities issuing lockdown of their own. North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Arkansas have no restrictions in place at the State level.  

Puerto Rico issued their own Stay-at-Home order on March 30th.
