IN THE US: 20,389 have already died due to COVID19! Stay at home!

More than 20,000 people have died from the coronavirus in the United States, which now has more reported deaths than any country in the world, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University.
The US death toll on Saturday climbed to 20,389, surpassing that of Italy, which is reporting 19,468 deaths, per Johns Hopkins.

"You can see that the number is somewhat stabilizing, but it is stabilizing at a horrific rate," Cuomo said. "These are just incredible numbers depicting incredible loss and pain."

But Cuomo also shared what he called good news, saying the state's curve "is continuing to flatten."
"The number of hospitalizations appears to have hit an apex, and the apex appears to be a plateau," the governor said, where numbers will level out for a period before dropping.
The hospitalization rate is also down, Cuomo said, as are the number of intensive-care admissions.
"Still people getting infected," he said, "still people going into the hospital, but again, a lower rate of increase."

"We re-run the model, basically, almost every night -- and the new returns from different states are suggesting different peaks in different states, but at the national level we seem to be pretty much close to the peak," he said Friday.

That model projects about 61,500 Americans will lose their lives to the virus by August -- if the country keeps social distance measures in place until the end of May. If they factor in states that may lift these rules by May 1, the numbers "don't look good," Murray said.

"So every day we need to continue to do what we did yesterday, and the week before, and the week before that, because that's what in the end is going to take us up across the peak and down the other side," she said.
