Just in time for summer, the United States is making significant progress in containing the coronavirus epidemic, with recorded illnesses reaching a new low for the year. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the country had less than 14,400 daily reported infections and 427 deaths in the last seven days. It’s the lowest level observed in the United States since late March 2020, only weeks after the pandemic was proclaimed.
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 42 percent of Americans are completely vaccinated, and roughly 52 percent have got at least one dose of the vaccine. However, health experts warn that because of a recent gap in vaccination rates, millions of people are vulnerable to Covid-19 strains that have arrived in the United States from other regions of the world.
A group of Houston Methodist Hospital employees opposed the health care system’s need that employees be vaccinated against Covid-19 on Monday, according to CNN affiliate KTRK. According to an early release from Houston Methodist CEO Marc Boom, on March 31, Houston Methodist became the first major health care organization in the United States to enforce Covid-19 vaccines, beginning with management. According to CNN, after breaking the medical profession’s beliefs, individuals who did not comply with Boom’s vaccine hospital’s policy were suspended.
