in United States
the epidemic of coronavirus
it’s still out of control
and the number of deaths could double in the next two months
compared to the current cumulative level. This is what emerges from a study on the spread of the virus in the country carried out by researchers from theImperial College London.
The document published on the university website clearly states that the pandemic “is not under control in much of the United States”, which is why researchers appeal to the authorities because must act with “caution”
in easing current restrictions “if effective additional measures are not taken”.
The updated data of the American university Johns Hopkins indicate that 94,702 deaths have so far occurred in the US due to the virus out of a total of 1,577,287 confirmed cases: according to the study, these data correspond to only 4% of Americans who has contracted the coronavirus so far, pointing out that even in the most affected states only 25% of the population fell ill by Covid-19. For example, in New York State, about 16.6% of the population has contracted the virus, compared to about 1% in California and less than 1% in Maine.
According to the researchers the situation is under control only in a few states, i.e. those who have an infection rate of less than one (the value of one indicates that each sick person transmits the virus only to another person). These include Montana, Hawaii, Wyoming, Alaska, West Virginia, Vermont, Idaho, North Dakota and Maine. The states with the highest contagion rates are Colorado, Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio.
