A forecast published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention projects there will be 332,000 to 362,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States by January 2.
Unlike some individual models, the CDC’s ensemble forecast only offers projections a few weeks into the future. The previous ensemble forecast, published December 3, projected up to 329,000 coronavirus deaths by December 26.
At least 289,450 people have already died from Covid-19 in the United States, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
