Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said today that based on projections, they estimate the state could see between 47,000 to 172,00 cases of coronavirus during the course of the pandemic.
Baker said that’s approximately 0.7% to 2.5% of the total population of Massachusetts.
The modeling also indicated that hospitalizations would potentially peak between April 10 and April 20, Baker said.
The governor added that the model is based on Wuhan and Massachusetts has factors that could improve the projections, for example, they have less population density, less smokers, and they implemented social distancing measures.
