For many it feels like a long winter, but there is good news coming from the US, as COVID-19 cases continue to decline and more and more people take its hit.
As of February 14, more than 70 million doses of vaccines have been delivered to Americans.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 in 10 Americans has received a dose of vaccine. And 14 million people in the country have received two doses, which means that about 4% of the nation has been completely inoculated. Currently, about 1.67 million doses are administered per day.
In hopeful new news, according to the Covid monitoring project Managed by The Atlantic, COVID cases are down 57% from the country’s historic peak in early January. While hospitalizations remain high, they are declining, and the increase in winter cases is reported to be “declining rapidly.”
Of course, there is still a long way to go until life returns to what will likely be a ‘new normal’.
Still, the winter surge is over. The vaccine launch is working. And it is likely that, if the current rate of vaccinations is maintained, by July, about half of Americans will have received their first dose of vaccine.
