Dr. Sarah Allred says social distancing is having an effect and appears to be slowly flattening the curve. Allred and her team just launched a new daily tracker that focuses on COVID 19 deaths by county in the state.
“We’re not doing enough testing to really know how many people are infected, which means that we can’t put into the model the number of infected people to know where we are on the curve,” said Sarah Allred, an associate professor at Rutgers University in Camden who is a data and computational researcher.
A new coronavirus tracker prepared by Rutgers University-Camden researcher Sarah Allred suggests the curve of coronavirus-related deaths in New Jersey has started to flatten. While the data doesn’t suggest New Jersey is anywhere close to being out of the woods — far from it — the speed with which new deaths are announced is starting … Continue reading Rutgers-Camden coronavirus tracker suggests New Jersey curve starting to flatten…
The Sen. Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs, at Rutgers University-Camden, released a research brief, projecting a need for between 1,270 and 3,249 Cape May County hospital beds to accommodate COVID-19 infected individuals at the peak of the health crisis. The county has 242 beds, according to the study.
Researchers behind a Rutgers University-Camden study into the need for additional hospital beds in South Jersey amid the novel coronavirus pandemic have updated their findings and included the needs of the hard hit northern section of New Jersey.
New Jersey has more than 18,000 acute care beds including 2,000 for critical care patients, Murphy said. Officials are working to increase the capacity by 2,360 beds over the next several weeks. But according to a study by researchers at Rutgers University-Camden, that’s not nearly enough.
