At the same time, the institute believes that the achievement of the peak incidence will become apparent according to official statistics on February 5, when more than 85 thousand cases of COVID-19 can be detected after testing. 

The institute also predicts that the peak load on the healthcare system will fall on February 10 - IHME admits that more than 133 thousand beds may be required for patients.

At the same time, American scientists believe that the number of deaths from coronavirus will continue to decline for the time being.
