An assistant professor of public health studies, Kimbrough offered her insights into a recent report about COVID-19-related deaths in North Carolina for the article in the Burlington Times-News.
A recent article in The Burlington Times-News features the expertise of Jen Kimbrough, assistant professor of public health studies.
The article titled “Study foresees thousands of deaths in North Carolina” includes Kimbrough’s analysis of a new report by the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. The study concluded that the COVID-19 oubreak will peak in April, decline dramatically and virtually gone by mid-July, but not before causing thousands of deaths.
Kimbrough notes that the report offers good estimates, but that there are a lot of variables that could impact what happens during the next several months. “All of the projections are best-guess estimates based on data published so far,” Kimbrough told The Times-News. “There is a wide margin of possible outcomes, particularly around projected deaths.”
