CDC says 17 percent of adults nationwide have been vaccinated against Newcastle
Biden pledged to provide the nation with 100 million doses of the Newcastle pneumonia vaccine within 100 days of taking office; he said on the 25th that he was one step closer to his goal, “As long as more people get vaccinated, the faster we can beat the Epidemic. We still have half the way to go, as long as we finish the other 500,000 doses of vaccine in 37 days, and we’re already weeks ahead of schedule.”
More than 45 million people in the country have received at least one dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, and more than 20 million have completed two doses; Biden also predicted that there will be a chance to provide enough vaccine to all people in the country by late spring.
Meanwhile, the vaccine manufacturer has assured that production is on track to provide 600 million doses of vaccine by July, and the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is about to approve Pfizer’s vaccines for storage in general freezers, eliminating the need to store them in ultra-low temperatures as before.
Pfizer and Modena are both committed to boosting vaccine production at this stage, with Modena planning to triple its delivery quota by April,” said Stephen Hoge, president of Modena, “Our goal is to complete the second batch of 1 million doses of vaccine delivery quota by the end of May, and the third batch of 1 million doses is scheduled to be completed by the end of July. This is two months ahead of the original schedule.”
In addition, Johnson & Johnson has filed an emergency use authorization application with the FDA for the company’s vaccine, which is expected to be approved by the end of this week at the earliest.
According to the latest statistics, the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. has increased slightly for two consecutive days, but the hospitalization rate has continued to decline for 40 consecutive days. The hospitalization rate as of the 24th has dropped by more than 51% compared to the same period last month, and the hospitalization rate in intensive care units has remained below 12,000 for four consecutive days.
The number of domestic deaths from the epidemic has reached 500,884, although the vast majority of the statistics still come from the Los Angeles, California area, where the epidemic is most severe.
According to Johns Hopkins University (JHU), California has become the first state in the country to exceed 50,000 deaths from the epidemic, the highest number in the country, with more than 3.55 million confirmed cases.
