West Virginia's coronavirus czar said Monday afternoon that one model being used to track the spread of the virus shows fewer deaths in the Mountain State and a surge that’s likely to happen around the middle of April.

Dr. Clay Marsh, speaking during state officials' daily update on the virus, said the University of Washington model predicts between 150 and 170 deaths in the state. That’s compared with the previous prediction of nearly 500 deaths.

In addition, the anticipated surge is now expected about April 15, which is a couple of weeks sooner than previously expected, he said.
