The nation is watching COVID-19 peak projections closely to allocate resources appropriately and prepare for the peak cases.
The University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle released an updated model of COVID-19 peak projections by state, assuming the states maintain social- distancing measures through May. The model includes state-level hospital capacity data, COVID-19 death data from the World Health Organization, and COVID-19 utilization information.
According to the model, Vermont, Washington, Louisiana, Michigan, Colorado, New York, Ohio, Delaware and the District of Columbia have already reached their peaks. Here are the states that are expected to peak in the next five days:
1. Illinois: April 11
2. New Jersey: April 11
3. Hawaii: April 12
4. California: April 13
5. Pennsylvania: April 13
6. Wisconsin: April 13
7. Idaho: April 14
8. Indiana: April 14
9. North Carolina: April 15
10. West Virginia: April 15
