Nearly half a million people have died from covid-19 in the United States.
Health Advisor to the President of the United States Joe Biden Anthony Fauci on Sunday, he believed that protective masks would have to be worn in 2022 due to the new coronavirus, although the situation is expected to return to normal by the end of the year. According to the latest data, almost half a million people have died from covid-19 in the USA.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 18.1 million people have been infected with the new coronavirus in the United States by Sunday, and nearly 499,000 have died. The condition is improving sharply, with 71,500 new infections reported on Sunday and 1,844 covid-19 patients dying, about a thousand fewer than in the past few days.
The worst situation is in California
The worst situation is in California with 3.5 million infected and 49,327 dead, although the number of infections and deaths is declining here as well. 2.6 million infections and more than 42,000 deaths have been reported in Texas so far, 1.9 million infected and nearly 30,000 dead in Florida, and 1.6 million infected and 46,812 dead in New York.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told ABC television that after a standstill due to a major winter storm that hit much of the U.S. last week, vaccinations have now been resumed and on Saturday and Sunday they managed to partially close the six million doses of vaccine delivery delay. Two million doses have been delivered, and more will remain this week.
“Terrible historical milestone”
Fauci commented on Fox News on Sunday on nearly half a million deaths due to covida-19, saying it was a terrible historical milestone, although the situation is improving as the number of infections and deaths falls and vaccinations intensify. Nevertheless, he continues to recommend social distance and wearing protective masks. He expects a significant normalization of the situation by the end of the year, but due to mutations in the new coronavirus, the mask will probably have to be worn in 2022. He told NBC that nothing so terrible has happened more than a hundred years since the flu pandemic.
Biden has set himself the goal of vaccinating 100 million people in the first 100 days of his term, which will be achieved and exceeded. Biden and health professionals, however, don’t want to sound overly optimistic. Biden, among other things, because he wants $ 1900 billion from Congress to fight the pandemic and help the economy. However, if there are no major complications with mutations in the new coronavirus, the condition can be “normalized” by the summer with successful vaccination.
