When aligning two sets of outbreak data, the infection rate of COVID-19 has a statistical average of 93.5% correlation between Italy and the United States. This indicates a reliable trend of viral spread (despite a difference in total population size and “patient zero” dates). If the matching rates continue into the end of the month, the amount of confirmed cases in the United States may reach ≥25,000 by March 31st, 2020.
