UT Austin Team Working With SGCI Staff Release New Model Forecasting When States Likely to See Peak in COVID-19 Deaths

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have released a model that provides a daily estimate of fatalities from COVID-19 in the United States for the coming weeks. The model finds that the number of deaths almost certainly has not yet peaked and is not likely to peak in many states until after May 1, a finding that is in contrast to one of the most frequently cited models.
The model was developed by several UT Austin researchers along with faculty and staff from the Texas Advanced Computing Center including SGCI Co-PI Maytal Dahan.
