The coronavirus pandemic isn’t expected to ease throughout the summer.
And an updated model shows the importance of being cautious and wearing masks.
The latest coronavirus projection from the University of Washington says more than 179-thousand Americans will die by October first.
But if masks are worn universally, researchers say the death toll could drop to 146-thousand.
This come as more than half of the US is seeing an increase in week-to-week cases, with records being set in California, Florida and Texas for single day coronavirus case reports.
Wednesday Texas reported more than 55-hundred cases and officials warn that if the situation continues, Houston could become the worst affected city in the country.
Officials say infections are also accelerating in Dallas, Austin and from San Antonio.
And while the White House says progress is being made on vaccines, health experts stress erring on the side of caution could be the difference between life and death.
