New forecasts from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington find COVID-19 deaths exceeding 125,000 through early August and continuing to increase after that.
Without access to soap and clean water, more than 2 billion people in low- and middle-income nations – a quarter of the world’s population – have a greater likelihood of acquiring and transmitting the coronavirus than those in wealthy countries.
In its first forecasts for COVID-19 deaths outside North America and Europe, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington is preliminarily projecting nearly 90,000 deaths in Brazil through early August, as well as more than 5,000 deaths each in Ecuador, Mexico, and Peru.

In its first forecasts for COVID-19 outside North America and Europe, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington is preliminarily projecting nearly 20,000 deaths in Mexico, Peru, and Ecuador combined through early August.
As some states continue to ease social distancing mandates and new data are acquired on people’s movements, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington is projecting a slight increase in expected COVID-19 deaths in the US.
New COVID-19 forecasts for the US project nearly 135,000 deaths through the beginning of August, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington.
New COVID-19 state-by-state US analyses from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) find that as early as May 4, some states may be able to relax some aspects of social distancing measures so long as “robust containment strategies” are implemented to prevent a second wave of infections.
An unintentional upload error to our data visualization tool has resulted in IHME issuing incorrect ranges of cumulative deaths in Europe related to COVID-19 in an April 6 press release and on its website.
New COVID-19 estimates find that, among European nations, the peak daily death rate from the pandemic will occur during the third week of April, with the pandemic spreading from Southern Europe.
Updated COVID-19 estimates find that need for hospital beds, ICU beds, and ventilators needed to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic are less than previously estimated.
In a forecast based on new data analyses, researchers find demand for ventilators and beds in US hospital intensive care units (ICUs) will far exceed capacity for COVID-19 patients as early as the second week of April.
Americans in 2016 spent an estimated $380 billion on low back and neck pain, as well as on joint and limb pain, and other musculoskeletal disorders.
Rates of people needing dialysis have increased more than 40% since 1990, but access to this life-saving treatment is still markedly inequitable, according to a new scientific study.
Twice as many men as women are dying from liver cirrhosis, according to a new scientific study.
Twice as many people as previously believed are dying of sepsis worldwide, according to an analysis published today in The Lancet. Among them are a disproportionately high number of children in poor areas.
For the first time, researchers have mapped years of education and child malnutrition across all low- and middle-income countries at the level of individual districts. The findings include precision maps illuminating disparities within countries and regions often obscured by national-level analyses.
Road injuries have become more frequent but less fatal over the past three decades, according to a new scientific study. The probability of dying from a road accident increased in only five nations since 1990 – Central African Republic, Jamaica, Somalia, Swaziland, and United Arab Emirates.
A Global Burden Disease study published last April and led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation that concludes poor diets cause one in five deaths globally has been ranked 11th in the 2019 Altmetric 100, the annual listing by the UK-based data science firm of research that most captured the public’s interest.
Heat-related incidents resulted in nearly 9 million injuries and more than 120,000 deaths worldwide in 2017, according to a new scientific study. Fires, heat, and hot substances, such as cooking oil or a hot stove, disproportionately kill young children and the elderly.
The lack of data, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, combined with the absence of international standards for data management, is hindering efforts in measuring progress toward meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Nine faculty members from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine have been named to a list of highly cited researchers for 2019, reflecting their broad influence and contributions to their fields.
It’s no secret that residents of the five Nordic countries live longer and healthier lives than the global average, yet subtle – but consequential – health differences remain, likely the result of alcohol use, smoking, and other risk factors, according to a new scientific study.
Current trends in fertility and maternal mortality lead researchers to project that more than 150,000 women will die during pregnancy and childbirth in 2030. In the US, where spending on health care is among the highest in the world, the maternal mortality ratio increased by nearly 70% between 2000 and 2017, from 18 deaths per 100,000 live births to 30.
Nominations are now open for the 2020 Roux Prize, which is awarded annually to an individual who has used health evidence in “bold ways to make people healthier” – and to highlight how visionaries use health data to change lives.
