U.S. coronavirus death forecast climbs as states reopen

The director of the University of Washington's Institute for Heath Metrics and Evaluation said on Sunday that a rise in mobility in the U.S. is driving up his mortality model's projection.

As more U.S. states move to lift coronavirus restrictions, a closely watched model for gauging the disease’s spread continues to raise its estimate for the number of U.S. deaths.

For the second time in under a week, the University of Washington’s Institute for Heath Metrics and Evaluation revised its forecast, which now stands at more than 137,000 deaths by August - roughly 3,000 more than its prior estimate on May 4.

On Sunday, IHME Director Christopher Murray told CBS News the reason was simple: more people moving around means more infections.

"What's driving the change is, simply put, the rise in mobility and that's the key driver.

We're seeing in some states, you know, a 20 percentage point increase in just 10 days in mobility.

And that will translate into more human contact, more transmission.

And then the other thing that we're- we're seeing in some states is, which is why we like to- to revise the forecast on a very regular basis, is that we're just seeing more cases and deaths than expected in certain places.

But it's mostly mobility that's driving up the numbers." Murray said some better-than-expected numbers showing declines in certain areas were more than offset by rising numbers in other places.

"Some 'good-ish' news coming out of New York and New Jersey and Michigan, where the death cases and death numbers are- are coming down faster than expected.

Some other states where cases and deaths are going up more than we expected, Illinois and then Arizona, Florida, California as examples of that... And then, of course, we're seeing just explosive increases in mobility in a number of states that we expect will translate into more cases and deaths, you know, in 10 days from now." Murray named five states: Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Georgia, where mobility has increased since the easing of lockdown measures, will likely soon see a rise in new infections.

New York City is one of the most exciting and resilient cities on the world. However, the coronavirus, economic downturn, and race riots have reduced residents quality of life.

'Boycott China': Indian Americans, Taiwanese Americans, Tibetans take to Times Square to denounce China

Indian Americans have called for 'Boycott China', a protest demonstration against China at the iconic Times Square in New York. This protest comes in the aftermath of the deadly border clash in the Himalayas that left 20 Indian soldiers dead and 76 injured. Despite the impact of coronavirus in New York, the demonstration saw dozens of Indian origin Americans standing in solidarity with members of the Tibetan community and Taiwanese Americans. Since the Galwan standoff between India and China, anti-China protests have broken out in several cities in the United States and scenes in New York looked no different as people were seen holding placards, raising the Indian and Tibetan national flags along with chanting pro-India and anti-china slogans. The protestors believe that even though the "boycott China" campaign has already been more successful than anticipated, there is still a lot to be done apart from simply stalling the use of Chinese products.
