Those forecasts predict: o The number of new COVID-19 deaths reported each week (31 forecasts), which indicates how reported deaths are likely to increase or decrease in the coming weeks o The total number of COVID-19 deaths reported by the end of each week (31 forecasts), which helps us understand the likely overall impact of the pandemic in the coming weeks Of the 32 modeling groups, 30 provided forecasts of both new and total deaths, one provided a forecast of new deaths only, and one provided a forecast of total deaths only. • This week’s national ensemble forecast predicts that weekly reports of new COVID-19 deaths may increase over the next month, with 5,000 to 11,000 new deaths reported during the week ending August 22. The ensemble forecast predicts that 168,000 to 182,000 total COVID-19 deaths will be reported by August 22. • State-level ensemble forecasts predict that the number of reported new deaths per week may increase over the next four weeks in: Alabama, Kentucky, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, and Washington.
