The U.S. death rate is predicted to reach around 180,000 by the end of October. Currently, the U.S. is facing a Coronavirus infection case of almost 2.5 million. As time goes by, the number will only increase for the nation. So, it is important that people wear face masks all the time in the country.
Previously, research from WHO showed that 100% of the world’s population needs to wear masks if they are to safe from Coronavirus. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington estimates around 180,000 death count due to Coronavirus by October 1. Though researchers believe that the number can drop by almost 40,000 if everyone starts wearing the mask.
America will face huge mortality rates by October
The country is going to face huge numbers of pandemic cases and deaths if proper care is not taken. Face masks have become the new norm for our population. Everyone needs to wear them. There is no doubt that as soon as states start opening the U.S. will again suffer from a high number of Coronavirus cases.
People need to know that wearing masks can reduce transmission of the virus by as much as 50 percent. But those who refuse are putting their lives, their families, their friends, and their communities at risk. COVID-19 infections in America reached their highest single-day total on 25th June, with more than 36,000 new cases reported. The majority were from Texas, Florida, and California.
All 50 states plus the District of Columbia in America, have reported confirmed cases of COVID-19, tallying more than 2,381,361 cases and at least 121,979 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins.
