According to the the Johns Hopkins live map, updated at 5:32 am today, 86,833 new cases of COVID-19 were reported around the world in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of reported cases to 4,651,119.

3,954 deaths due to COVID-19 were reported around the world in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to deaths 312,119.

The U.S. reported 24,487 new cases in the past 24 hours, 21% of all the new cases in the world, bringing the total of new cases to 1,467,884, 32% percent of the world’s total.

The U.S. reported 1,186 Americans died of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, for a total of 88,754 deaths, 28% percent of the world’s total.

Americans have been dying at an average number (since 4/1/20) of 1,821 per day. At this rate, 116,069 Americans will be dead by the end of this month. Projecting a little further, 283,608 Americans will be dead by 8/31/20. This is going on the assumption that the average won’t go up, which it almost certainly will as one state after another “reopens” for the summer.

I’m not sure if an average or a median number is more appropriate for a projection like this; seems like a median might be, so just to cover all the bases: Americans have been dying at a median number (since 4/1/20) of 1,710 per day. At this rate, 114,404 Americans will be dead by the end of this month. 271,724 Americans will be dead by 8/31/20.
