Half a million dead: the USA in the race against the virus

In the United States, around 44 million people have received at least one vaccination since mid-December, which corresponds to a good 13 percent of the population. Almost 19 million people have already received both of the required doses, according to data from the CDC health authority. For comparison: In Austria, 2.2 percent of the population have received the full vaccine so far.

After about a year of a state of emergency, corona fatigue is spreading in the USA. Everyone is hoping for a return to a certain normality soon.  The  question of when the time will come is currently being asked almost every day to Biden and his corona expert Anthony Fauci. “I can’t give you a date when this crisis will end,” Biden said last. “But I can tell you that we are doing everything possible to ensure that this day comes sooner rather than later.” © www.de24.news

 The  president was at least confident that Christmas could be celebrated again this year with the extended family. “But I can’t promise you that,” he warned.

 The  government will get around 600 million doses of vaccine from manufacturers Moderna and Pfizer / Biontech by the end of July, which would be sufficient for all adults in the country. This could mean – if everything goes well and only a small proportion of Americans refuse to be vaccinated – the worst of the pandemic could be over in the fall.
