First come cases, then hospitalizations, then deaths.
Great progress has been made in the treatment of patients admitted to hospitals with the coronavirus. But, if the case count keeps spiking like it is, the level of care needed to provide superb treatment will be challenging to achieve.
You can keep an eye on all the stats at the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center webpage.
My projection is that by Thanksgiving we'll be having 200,000 cases a day and by mid-December it will hit 300,000 a day as everyone who "gathered for family Thanksgiving dinners" gets sick. That puts hospitalizations at their peak around Christmas. As for deaths, 2,000 a day will be reached sooner rather than later.
