By Lucky Uwakna (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – At least 100 million U.S. adults are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, a major milestone in the harrowing fight to end the pandemic, White House officials announced Friday.
Daily average COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. fell to a low of 628 for this year on Thursday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Over the past seven days, 4,838 Americans died of coronavirus. It’s still staggering figure, but is less than a quarter as many fatalities as the U.S. was seeing each week for much of January and February.
Cases are declining too, with the seven-day rolling average falling to 51,228, the fewest since October 15. Although only 30 percent of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, it’s now undeniable that the shots are starting to have an effect.
