Open data paints a bleak picture

Faced with a new surge in coronavirus cases, California officials on Thursday launched a new open-source assessment tool that allows users to see different forecasts of the continued spread of COVID-19, including projected infections, hospitalizations and deaths. Gov. Gavin Newsom described the California COVID Assessment Tool, or CalCAT, as a “model of models,” incorporating the statistical projections offered by several leading research institutions. And the forecast over the next few weeks is rather grim, with estimates that there could be 14,682 COVID-19 patients hospitalized statewide by July 25, and as many as 11,000 deaths by the end of next month. Benjamin Freed reports.
