Oliver Wyman’s Pandemic Navigator: COVID Will Spike to 6MM in September in the US

Jul 23, 2020

New York, July 23, 2020…Oliver Wyman’s COVID-19 Pandemic Navigator provides daily insights into the COVID-19 crisis at county level across the US. Our forecasts are featured at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website along with other leading models, and is helping companies, cities, and businesses decide when and how to reopen safely. As of today, we anticipate there will be more than 6 million COVID cases in the US before the end of September if we stay on the current path. We can provide a proprietary risk score and offer insight on the long- and short-term scenarios for every metropolitan statistical area and state within the US. 

“The recent resurgence led to almost 1 million active COVID cases, concentrated in select states. Even with strong containment efforts, it will take multiple weeks to bring the number of active cases down to a manageable level,” said Ugur Koyluoglu, Oliver Wyman partner.  “If we want to see economic recovery and a return to a re-envisioned normal in the second half of this year, we must drastically shift our culture and embed critical behaviors into our daily lives across states, employers, and individuals.”
