The July 30th IHME projections for US deaths by Nov. 1 has increased by 11,000, from 220,000 last week to 231,000 now. The US lives savable by Nov. 1 by universal mask wearing is now at 32,000, still about the same as the 34,000 that were savable last week. Today’s US deaths are 152,000. So of the new projected US deaths of 231,000 – 152,000 = 79,000, the 32,000 savable are 40.5%.
For World countries, we show current deaths, projected deaths by Nov. 1, and deaths with Universal Masking. We show a subset of countries with Projections much larger than Present Deaths, or where masking can save many lives.
|Country||Present Deaths||Projection||With Masks|
Total World deaths are 672,062. The World has 17.3 million cases. The leading countries are the US with 4.50 million, Brazil with 2.61 million, and India with 1.63 million cases.
We show the IHME projected deaths for US states which still have large projected increases, or in which a large number of lives can be saved by universal masking.
