A new coronavirus model projects that Missouri could see peaks in daily deaths and resource use from COVID-19 at the end of April. The model comes from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. According to the model, Missouri is projected to see its peak in daily deaths around April 25. The model also projects Missouri will see their peak of resource use by April 25. Nationally, the model projects that the United States experienced its peak in daily deaths on Friday, April 10 and its peak in resources on Saturday, April 11. The projections are based on the assumption that states will follow and observe full social distancing measures through at least May 2020.

State health officials say there are now 4,160 confirmed coronavirus cases in Missouri, along with 110 deaths. Missourinet’s Brian Hauswirth has the story:

Laclede County has conducted at least 126 tests, with 113 negatives, 0 positive and 13 test results are pending. Meanwhile Governor Parson has signed into law emergency funding to help the state respond to the coronavirus. The plan, passed last week by the Missouri Legislature, gives the governor up to 6.2 billion dollars in spending power.
