Figures and Projections as of June 30, 2020
Within five months, “COVID-19 has brought this nation [U.S.] to its knees” and has already infected “10 times more [people] than currently reported,” admitted CDC Director Robert Redfield. That’s 23 million, or 7 percent, of all Americans, yet just 10 percent of the estimated 70 percent level required for herd immunity. The nation is on track to realize the high end of the White House’s projection of 240,000 pandemic-related deaths.
