Model projects when states will reach peak

Jennifer Burnett
Model project peak rates for states and nations.

The University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation has developed a model to project future cases of COVID-19 in the United States and internationally. The Institute offers a graphical representation of COVID-19 related data, including projections for when each state will peak. The site provides projections for peak hospital use and deaths assuming full social distancing through May 2020.

The model currently predicts Kentucky will reach peak resource use on April 21, 2020.
