U.S. Covid-19 Cases Grow 41 Percent Overnight

The rate of COVID-19 infection in the U.S. climbed from 5,881 to 8,317 in the past 24 hours, an increase of 2,436 or 41 percent. At that rate, infections will more than double every two days instead of every three, which is what I projected back on Sunday, March 15, when the country had only 2,759 known cases.

1400 New U.S. Coronavirus Cases in 24 Hours

The number of cases of people infected with the coronavirus in the U.S. grew by almost a third in the past 24 hours. As of this morning, there were 5,881 cases, an increase of 1,399, or just over 31 percent. At this rate, my earlier report that cases were doubling every 3 days and projection that we could reach 88,000 cases by March 30 and 1 million by April 10 is going to end up being too conservative.

Day 3 of Quarantine and We’re Bored Already

This morning, the New York Times reports that there are 3,602 known cases of COVID-19 in the United States. That represents an increase of 843 from yesterday’s report, a growth rate of 30%. I suspect the increase in the growth rate is likely a result of greater availability of test kits. New York State has now eclipsed Washington and has the most reported cases at 732. However Washington still has the most deaths at 42 out of a national total of at least 66.
