The COVID - 19 pandemic in the United States is part of the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 ( COVID - 19 ). As of December 2020, there have been more than 15,600

The following is a timeline of the COVID - 19 pandemic in the United States. By late November 2019, coronavirus disease 2019 had broken out in Wuhan, China.

New modeling from the Centers for the Disease Control and Prevention paints a grim outlook for the near-term future of the covid-19 pandemic in the U.S., even as Americans are poised to receive the first doses of two highly effective vaccines soon. This week, the agency released projections that estimate the country will reach over 330,000 deaths directly attributed to the viral illness by January 2.

As many as 500,000 Americans may die before the pandemic ends, some experts have estimated.

The updated estimates, released by the CDC on Wednesday, are pulled from analyzing forecasts on the pandemic from 40 different modelers. In other words, they’re akin to an average of what other data scientists are predicting in the near future.

Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

Countries need to prepare for a potential uptick in Covid - 19 infections this winter that could be more serious than the initial outbreak of the pandemic , scientists say.

An influential coronavirus model cited by the White House predicts the pandemic will "peter out" in May, but experts are wary about its assumption that there will be no resurgence of the virus in the summer months.

The numbers reflect the record-setting rise in covid-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths seen in recent days and weeks. On Wednesday and Thursday, for instance, more than 3,000 deaths were recorded by various trackers—the deadliest peak seen so far and a number larger than American lives lost during the September 11 terrorist attacks. Daily new cases continue to reach more than 200,000, while more than 100,000 people are currently hospitalized.

According to the CDC, deaths will likely only continue to increase over the next four weeks, with as many as 12,600 to 23,400 new deaths likely reported in the week ending Jan. 2, 2021 (a Saturday). They also estimate that a total of between 332,000 to 362,000 Americans will have been killed by the disease by that day. The numbers fit well with CDC director Robert Redfield’s comments made earlier this week.

Researchers compared excess deaths in New York City during the peak of the 1918 pandemic with those during the first few months of the Covid - 19 outbreak. They used public data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and

In many ways, the COVID - 19 pandemic has proven to be a moving target. Faced with stopping a pandemic scientists have yet to fully understand, researchers When enough of the global population becomes immune, SARS-CoV-2 will lose its infectious toehold, failing to find enough new, susceptible

“We are in the timeframe now that probably for the next 60 to 90 days we’re going to have more deaths per day than we had at 9/11 or we had at Pearl Harbor,” Redfield said Thursday during a virtual event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations. Of course, Redfield himself has been accused of doing not enough to prevent the CDC from being silenced by others in the Trump administration who sought to downplay the pandemic.

Pfizer's Covid-19 Vaccine Wins Crucial Vote, Now One Step Away From FDA Authorization

The even more tragic backdrop to these deaths is that the U.S. will likely have not one, but two highly effective vaccines available to Americans by the month’s end. Pfizer/BioNTech’s vaccine is expected to be granted an emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration as early as Thursday evening, while Moderna’s similar mRNA candidate will be evaluated next week.

Raiders' Trent Brown set to return to practice

  Raiders' Trent Brown set to return to practice Trent Brown has played just 73 offensive snaps in his second Raiders season, but the Pro Bowl right tackle may be on the verge of suiting up again. The sixth-year blocker is set to resuming practicing next week, Vic Tafur of The Athletic tweets. An injury initially sidelined Brown, but coronavirus complications have shelved the mammoth offensive lineman for the past several weeks.Brown, whose positive COVID-19 test led to the rest of the Raiders starting O-line missing a full week of practice in Week 7, was on the verge of returning from his bout with the virus in Week 8 against the Browns.

This article documents the chronology and epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 in January 2020, the virus which causes the coronavirus disease 2019 ( COVID - 19 )

"It hasn't caused a pandemic yet because it ' s not highly transmissible from person to person. "In contrast, the seasonal coronaviruses that we get In terms of the three ingredients that make a pandemic , when it comes to COVID - 19 there' s not much we can do to stop the coronavirus from

Despite their pending approval, there simply won’t be enough doses available for the U.S. population at large until late winter or early spring next year, thanks in part to the Trump administration reportedly turning down Pfizer’s offer earlier in the year to secure an additional 100 million doses. And all of this is contingent on Americans being willing to take these vaccines as they become available. Worldwide, experts are worried that many poorer countries will be largely shut out of the distribution of these initial doses.

The pandemic will eventually reach its end, but not without a steep cost paid in lives. According to Youyang Gu, a data scientist and especially accurate modeler during the pandemic, deaths may begin to drop dramatically as early as May next year assuming high vaccine uptake among high-risk groups of people, while herd immunity may be reached by early summer. Before then, though, the official U.S. death toll will likely reach somewhere around 500,000.
