The Big Cities Health Coalition (BCHC) released estimates that show that early actions by BCHC members, leaders from America's largest metropolitan health departments, to get the public to stay home led to an estimated 2.1 million hospitalizations avoided and over 200,000 lives saved. These estimates, based on 45-day shelter-in-place/stay-at-home orders, were calculated by the Urban Health Collaborative at Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health using a model published by The New York Times.
