The US can expect to see roughly 3,000 COVID-19 deaths every day for the next 60 to 90 days, CDC Director Robert Redfield said yesterday, according to The Hill.
- Redfield compared the cost in lives to a 9/11 every day. Nearly 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
- If his prediction stands, the US coronavirus death toll could reach 470,000 to 560,000 by early spring.
- 292,190 COVID-19 deaths have been recorded as of this morning, according the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering COVID-19 dashboard.
