The University of Washington Institute of Health Metrics and Assessments, whose models for the evolution of the pandemic are often used by the White House, estimates that the country will reach October with about 180,000 deaths.

The covid-19 pandemic has already claimed nearly 507,000 deaths and infected more than 10.37 million people in 196 countries and territories, according to a report by the France-Presse news agency (AFP).
