In the last month, the country reached the mark of 1.7 million doses applied each day; President Joe Biden expects the situation to normalize before Christmas
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of U.S reported that the pace of vaccination against Covid-19 almost doubled in the last month. The institution’s director, Rochelle Walensky, stressed that the current rate of 1.7 million doses applied each day coincides with the decrease in the number of infections by new coronavirus in the country in the last five weeks, which happened despite the appearance of new variants of the Sars-Cov-2. To date, about 12% of the United States population (equivalent to 40 million people) has received at least one dose of the vaccine. Among these individuals, 15 million have already completed immunization. After promising enough doses for the entire population by July, Joe Biden stated that the United States should return to a certain normality before the next Christmas. “We will be in a very different situation, God willing, than we are today,” said the president in a statement made on Tuesday, 16.
