The milestone reflects the steady increase in the state’s ability to vaccinate residents
new York.-According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States is vaccinated with a record 3 million doses per day.
The milestone reflects the steady improvement in the state’s ability to vaccinate residents. In early March, the United States averaged over 2 million doses per day. In January, the average daily dose was 800,000 times. Now, as more and more states expand qualifications and increase production, nearly one-third of the country’s population has received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
In total, 104 million people received at least one dose, and 59 million received full vaccination. The United States uses two doses of vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, and one dose from Johnson & Johnson.
The news about the vaccination rate began when President Joe Biden entered the final stage of his first 100 days in office, and he had promised to implement 200 million doses. Since January, the number of new virus cases, deaths and hospitalizations has generally declined.
However, the average number of new cases reported in the past two weeks has increased by 19%, and federal officials have warned that complacency about the coronavirus could lead to another serious wave of infections.
Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an emotional plea this week: “We have too many expectations, we have many promises and potentials, and there are many reasons for hope.”
“But now I am scared.”
According to the New York Times database, there were an average of 64,730 cases per day in the past week, an increase of 19% from two weeks ago. The average number of new deaths has decreased, but it is still around 900 per day. More than 960 were reported on Friday.
