UW model offers hope for Washington’s coronavirus response, but still forecasts 82,000 dead nationwide

It projected daily COVID-19 deaths in the state would peak on Monday before dropping to 18 deaths per day through Thursday and declining slowly afterward. And it suggests the state will reach its total death toll – 632 – on May 10.
