Title

Vermont far exceeds Covid death predictions for August

Description

"Going into August, state officials hoped Vermont would see few, if any, Covid deaths, even as the number of cases rose. On August 3, a modeling presentation at Gov. Phil Scott’s weekly press conference forecasted between zero and six Covid deaths in the state for the month of August.

But Vermont has now seen more than twice the high end of that range. The state added two new deaths to its count Thursday (August 26), bringing it to 13 so far this month. In total, 273 Vermonters have died in the pandemic."
