REPORT: Leaked papers reveal SHOCKING coronavirus cases, deaths that US hospitals are secretly preparing for
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DailyMail:
US hospitals are preparing for 96 million coronavirus infections and nearly half a million deaths from the outbreak, leaked documents have revealed.
The spread of the deadly disease could be far worse than officials claim, with 480,000 Americans expected to die from the virus and 4.8 million hospitalized, according to a presentation hosted by The American Hospital Association (AHA) in February.
The article goes on to state the following:
Dr. James Lawler, a professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, presented the harrowing ‘best guess’ estimates of the extent of the outbreak to hospitals and health professionals as part of the AHA webinar called ‘What healthcare leaders need to know: Preparing for the COVID-19’ on February 26.
The Daily Mail reported that the leaked slides from the presentation, which were obtained by Business Insider, warn hospitals they need to prepare now for the crisis in order to help reduce the death toll nationwide. The estimated numbers on the documents indicate the coronavirus crisis could end up being 10 times greater than the number of cases in a typical severe flu season.
When the presentation was held, there were about 60 known cases of the coronavirus in the United States, but no deaths.
Just one week later, there are 700 cases in the U.S., and 17 deaths.
