The American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that the number of people vaccinated with a vaccine against the Coronavirus in the United States had reached about 9 million, but the pandemic has not yet receded.
The American Centers reported that, as of Monday morning, 8987322 people had been vaccinated with the first dose of the two vaccines registered in the country, namely the vaccine developed by the American “Pfizer” and the German “Biotech” company, and the American “Moderna” vaccine.
Despite this, the governors of several American states announced the lack of vaccines to ensure vaccination at a necessary pace, at a time when the country is registering increasing indications of the spread of the virus, as daily infections during the past week exceeded 200,000 cases, while the average number of deaths reached 3,200.
In this context, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield, confirmed on January 9 that the daily death toll from the Coronavirus is expected to remain at a level between 2,500 and 5,000 people, indicating in a press interview: “It is likely that the situation will deteriorate during January and perhaps in Some days in February before there is an improvement. ”
The United States is the first country in the world in terms of the number of Coronavirus infections with more than 22.5 million cases and the first in terms of the pandemic’s death toll, with more than 375,000 deaths.
