CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Nearly seven months ago, 3,500 people in America had died from coronavirus, and the White House coronavirus task force released what seemed like shocking projections on what the death toll could be.
White House projections on March 31 indicated 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the U.S. from the pandemic.
America passed 100,000 deaths about two months later, on May 28.
It is estimated about 800 people are dying per day in America due to coronavirus.
That number is now estimated at just under 9 million.
