The provisional balance of the deceased – 147,588 – has already far surpassed the lowest level of the Initial White House estimates, which projected at best between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths from the pandemic.
US President Donald Trump lowered those estimates and was confident that the final figure would be more between the 50,000 and 60,000 deceased, though he later augured to 110,000 dead, a number that has also been surpassed.
For its part, the Institute of Health Metrics and Assessments (IHME) at the University of Washington, whose models of predicting the evolution of the pandemic are often set by the White House, estimates that the United States will reach October with some 200,000 dead and that by the November 3 presidential election it could be around 220,000.
