America's coronavirus deaths could surpass 511,000 by the end of February.
According to Business Insider, the staggering number comes from a new University of Washington model.
The model also found that nearly 130,000 of those lives could be saved if 95% of Americans wore masks.
The problem officials found is that only 60% of Americans say they always wear a mask in public.
Researchers found that mask-wearing could also delay the need for lockdowns.
