The coronavirus outbreak that started spreading in 2019, has been taking over the world by damaging and causing deaths of people around the world. Due to this outbreak, the world has lost so many people including infants and children. This pandemic has not only caused deaths and damages but also has caused damages to the society and economy of the world which might require some time for all the countries to rise back again. Even though all the countries have been taking all the safety measures, imposing restrictions, lockdowns, and even started giving vaccinations to the people to protect them against these deadly infections.
President Biden’s Vaccination Target Is Unlikely To Reach By July 4
The United States of America stands top of the list that has the highest number of infected cases and deaths. The current reports show that the total number of infected people in the United States is more than 3.3 crores and the number of deaths caused due to this is more than 9.4 lakhs. Even though the country has been taking all the safety measures and following guidelines, it has been difficult in controlling the spread of the infections. However, after taking the vaccinations, the reports suggest that the number of new coronavirus cases is under control and has not been spreading like before.
As per the reports, President Biden took over the administration in January 2021, and before that, the total number of people who were vaccinated were only 1% of the population and now, after taking over the administration, the current data shows that more than 60% of the population has been vaccinated at least one dose and more than around 40% of the population has received both the doses. The United States of America has been receiving vaccinations from Pfizer and AstraZeneca, which has been very useful in the efficiency of the reduced spread of the virus. After getting the vaccinations, people in the United States of America have been following the life after the pandemic and started going out and celebrating the events.
As per the recent reports, president Biden has set a target to reach the goal of 70% of the population has to be vaccinated by July 4 to control the spread of the disease. He has been setting this goal for months, taming of the coronavirus pandemic. But now, as per the recent reports, the United States of America is unlikely to meet the target to have 70% of the population partially vaccinated by July 4. And the White House has launched a month-long blitz to combat vaccine hesitancy and, due to the lack of urgency to get shots, particularly in the Midwest and South, has slowed down the process and the vaccination schedule might be a bit behind than it was planned. The administration is currently stressing that even though we can not reach the target of 70% by July 4, we still can continue and this might have an overall effect on the United States recovery.
As per the news reports, about 15.5 million Americans are still unvaccinated and they need to receive at least one dose of vaccination by the next four weeks. But the pace of the new vaccinations has dropped to about 400,000 people per day, which was nearly 2 million people per day two months ago. The nation’s top infection disease expert mentioned that he still believes that the goal will be met and even though we can’t meet the goal, we will keep going to keep pushing the limits. As per the reports, almost 14 states have received the 70% target among adults, with about a dozen more on pace to reach the milestone by July 4. But state-to-state variation is stark.
