The COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t show signs of slowing down in the US, as the country is confronting with about 200,000 infections every day. A lot of people are clinging to hope that the vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna will make everyone’s lives return to normal, and the rollout of immunizations has started to accelerate.
Thanks to Bloomberg, vaccine doses administered in the US and around the world are counted. Even data from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) are collected.
1.25 million vaccinations for a single day
The same Bloomberg writes that the tally of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in the US rose by 1.25 million on Monday, January 11. The sudden increase is very welcoming, as the vaccine rollout in the country has been going in a slow rhythm.
Until January 12 and starting from December 14 last year, 9.27 million Americans have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. About 280,000 of them have already gotten the second dose.
As the usual symptoms of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are already known by everybody (fatigue, body aches, headaches, fever, cough, etc.), we all should not ne neglecting them once they kick in. Getting tested for COVID-19 represents a sure way of staying safe. There’s no use waiting to get severely ill, as even those who experience mild symptoms can infect others.
As for the overall situation in the world regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, things continue to look awful at the moment. A total of over 9 million infections and almost 2 million deaths represent the harsh reality that will keep haunting us all for a long time. The US remains the most affected country by the coronavirus, followed by India, Brazil, Russia, the UK, France, Turkey, Italy, and so on.
