Worldwide, the number of of COVID-19 cases has passed 100,000. In Florida, two individuals who had recently engaged in international travel have died. Patients have now tested positive in 28 states, with the addition of Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Utah on Friday.
And it’s quite possible that ~2-6 billion people around the globe could have become infected with COVID-19 sometime in July. Of this year. More on that from Liz Specht, below.
In Washington, King County (Seattle) has 58 positive cases; Snohomish County (Everett) has 19 positive cases; and Grant (eastern Washington) and Jefferson (the western peninsula) counties each have one. Also, two additional eldercare facilities have patients with symptoms.
We need to talk about math for a moment.
87 confirmed cases so far in the UK. Are we now reaching the ‘delay’ stage of the #Covid19 action plan? This graph by @TheEconomist @CDCgov shows the purpose of the strategy: to spread out infections over time so health care systems can better deal with the virus. #Peston pic.twitter.com/Deu7EuspPo
