On Monday night, the United States passed over 500,000 dead as a result of the coronavirus, according to figures from the Worldometer.

It is about a year since the first confirmed cases of covid-19 were registered in the United States.

Johns Hopkins University in the United States also records close to half a million covid-19 deaths now.

US President Joe Biden will honor those who have lost their lives linked to the coronavirus. On Monday, there will be a celebration from the White House with a minute of silence and lighting of candles.

First lady Jill Biden and vice president Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff will also participate in the celebration, writes the news agency AP.

As the country passed 400,000 corona dead in January, a silent celebration was held at the National Memorial Pool between the Lincoln Monument in Washington.

– The memorial ceremony we had two days ago will unfortunately not be the last. The death toll will probably reach 500,000 within the next month, Biden said when he signed ten new presidential orders to strengthen efforts against the coronavirus. in January.

Mouthpieces in 2022

America’s leading infection control expert Anthony Fauci says the whole thing is terrible.

– It’s horrible. It’s historic. We have not seen anything close to this in well over a hundred years. Not since the flu pandemic of 1918, US chief of infection Anthony Fauci told NBC television.

– It is unique when you look at the numbers. It’s almost unbelievable, but it’s true, he said

Despite this, Fauci believes that life may begin to return to normal during the fall or winter.

When asked by CNN if bandages may be relevant in 2022, Fauce replied that it is possible that bandages are still needed in the country in 2022.

– It is difficult to predict, but it may be that we have to wear a face mask then as well, he said.

Despite this, Fauci believes that life may begin to return to normal during the fall or winter.

Infection peak in winter

Almost 30 million cases of infection have been registered in the United States. The actual number of infections is still considered to be three to four times higher as a result of low test capacity, and because many infected people never get symptoms.

The United States saw a sharp increase in infection in December and January, which is partly linked to people coming together to celebrate holidays.

After reaching a peak in January, infection rates have been declining. Fauci believes that Americans can still have to wait a long time before life returns to normal.

“I think we’ll see a great deal of normality when we get to the fall and winter, by the end of this year,” Fauci told CNN.

Gradual vaccine progress

Great optimism was also associated with the start of coronary vaccination, but in many places progress has been slower than expected.

“There has never, ever, been a logistical challenge with such great consequences as what we are now trying to deal with, but we will get it done,” US President Joe Biden said last week.

Biden has set himself the goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans during his first 100 days as president. On average, 1.7 million doses are now given every day.

Over 60 million people have so far received their first dose, while 18 million have also received their second dose.
