National Coronavirus Updates

    • Lifting restrictions after just 30 days will lead to a dramatic infection spike this summer and death tolls that would rival doing nothing, according to the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services. The model foresees a bump in the demand for ventilators — considered a stand-in for serious COVID-19 infection rates — 30 days after stay-at-home orders are issued, a major spike in infections about 100 days after, and peaking 150 days after the initial order. Without any mitigation, the death toll could have reached 300,000. But if the administration lifts the 30-day stay-at-home orders, the death total is estimated to reach 200,000, even if schools remain closed until summer, 25 percent of the country continues to work from home and some social distancing continues. But with a 30-day shelter in place and other measures, infections would still reach 160 million and 740,000 would need intensive care.
