The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, an independent population health research center at the University of Washington, has released a new study projecting the date of peak hospital resource use nationally and within individual states. 

The model takes into account the already implemented social distancing measures in place in some locations but otherwise assumes similar restrictions will be placed in all other locals within seven days of the last model update. It also assumes continued social distancing will run until the end of May. 

As of March 31, the data shows hospital resource use will peak nationally on April 16, 2020. Based on the projection, COVID-19 patients would require 260,342 beds of which the nation would be short 84,671. There would be a need for 38,849 ICU beds and a shortage of 18,905. 31,082 ventilators would be needed. The following is a state-by-state breakdown.
