Researchers Say Mask Usage Key To Preventing Coronavirus Spike In Louisville Tuesday, Aug 4 2020

Projections through September published last week by Karimi and his team show that a continued mask mandate, increase in mask-wearing and limited mobility would keep hospitalizations next month to about 70 at a time, what he described as a manageable number. That best case scenario projection also projects the city’s death toll would reach 270 by mid-September.
