The United States could become free of coronavirus by late September, and the whole world can expect to put pandemics behind it in December, said a team of scientists in Singapore.
A mathematical model created by the Singapore University of Technology and Design allows scientists to predict the future of the virus using data from confirmed cases and deaths worldwide.
Based on “a predictive-monitoring” method, the model inputs global data, which is converted to a bar chart. A curve at the top of the chart shows the trajectory of the disease. By the end of April, its predictions show that the United States will be without a virus on Sept. 20 and the U.K. can see the coronavirus end on August 27th.
University scientists have warned that their dates are inaccurate and predictions should not lead to the immediate end of locks around the world.
“Overoptimism based on some predicted end dates is dangerous because it can loose our discipline and control and cause virus rotation,”; they said.
