Senior US health officials said Wednesday that the United States will have enough vaccine for every American by “the end of July,” echoing an estimate from the president hours earlier, but contradicting the predictions of the nation’s top infectious disease expert. “We are on track to get the adequate vaccine supplies for 300 million Americans by the end of July,” said Jeff Zents, the White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, in a briefing to the staff on Wednesday. President Joe Biden displayed a similar schedule in City Hall “By the end of July, we will have more than 600 million doses, enough to vaccinate every American,” said Biden. Estimates clash with Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent predictions. And last week, Fauci said April would be an “open season.” On Tuesday, he backtracked on that schedule, and told CNN that vaccines may not be available to all the general public until mid-May or even June. Fauci attributed the change in his forecast to lower-than-expected initial production of Johnson’s vaccine & Johnson next. US continues to ramp up vaccinations. Last week, the US ran an average of seven days of 1.7 million doses per day, up from less than a million doses per day in mid-January. On Tuesday, the White House said that counting D rises to more than 1.9 million this week, but as winter weather continued to wreak havoc across the country on Wednesday, some vaccination sites canceled appointments, and vaccine shipments continued to be delayed, Zentz said. Zentes said the weather has an effect. It has an impact on distribution and delivery. “We want to make sure that, given that time is wasted in some states for people to get needles in arms, our partners are doing everything they can to make up for this lost land.” Meanwhile, the Biden administration announced on Wednesday that it would. Scaling up testing for schools and underserved populations, increasing local manufacturing of testing supplies and increasing virus genome sequencing. Today the USA is tracking the news of COVID-19.

In the headlines: ► In remarks to the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken called on “all countries” to submit all data from the first days of the outbreak. The comments come days after reports emerged that China had refused to give preliminary data on early cases of COVID-19 to a WHO team investigating the origins of the epidemic. North Korea has attempted to hack the servers of the US drug company Pfizer to steal coronavirus vaccine information. South Korean intelligence officials reported Tuesday, according to the Washington Post, that the European Union has announced an agreement to purchase 300 million additional doses of Moderna vaccine. Hours earlier, Pfizer and BioNTech said they had signed a deal to deliver an additional 200 million doses of their vaccine to the block, and researchers at the Proceedings of the National Academy reported that a genetic mutation associated with protection against severe COVID-19 was inherited from Neanderthals. Sciences. Neanderthals evolved in western Eurasia 500,000 years ago and subsequently lived largely separate from the ancestors of modern humans in Africa. Doctors across the country have seen a marked increase in cases of pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome, or MIS-C, a condition that sometimes affects young adults several weeks after contracting the coronavirus, the New York Times reports. The increase comes on the heels of the overall rise in COVID cases in the US – today’s numbers: The US has more than 27.8 million confirmed coronavirus cases and nearly 490,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Global totals: More than 109.8 million cases and 2.42 million deaths. More than 72.4 million vaccine doses have been distributed in the United States and 56.2 million doses have been administered, according to the CDC What We Read: A next-generation vaccine for the Coronavirus is in the making. But the initial funding was declined. Read the full story: With the NHL dealing with COVID-19 issues, so is the virus transmission on ice between players to blame, as signs that COVID-19 could wreak havoc in the 2021 NHL season existed before the first disc fell. Five days before opening night on January 13th, the league announced that the Western Conference champion, the Dallas Stars, would not open the season as scheduled because 17 players had contracted the Coronavirus during the training camp, and since then, seven other teams have been sidelined due to COVID-19. . 35 games have been postponed so far and at least 124 players have been relegated to NHL’s COVID-19 list. Players are on the list for a number of reasons, from positive COVD-19 testing to high-risk close contact to post-trade quarantine. The NHL now admits that COVID-19 could spread throughout the league as a result of – contact with ice and because more contagious strains have crept into the league.

Here are the highlights: A $ 650 million investment to expand testing opportunities for K-8 schools and disadvantaged community settings, such as homeless shelters. Establishing regional coordination centers to organize the distribution of testing supplies and partnering with laboratories across the country, including universities and commercial laboratories to collect samples, conduct tests and present results to public health agencies, invest $ 815 million to increase local manufacturing of test supplies and materials that have caused shortage problems, plan Valued at nearly $ 200 million by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to identify and track emerging strains, increasing the agency’s sequencing capacity from about 7,000 samples per week to nearly 25,000. The White House said in a press release that the investments are the “only beginning” of what is needed to expand Nationwide testing. Biden’s US rescue plan, which he wants to be approved by Congress in the coming weeks, will invest $ 50 billion to expand and support tests. Fauci says research has begun to show that vaccines prevent transmission. Anthony Fauci cited data early on Wednesday indicating that vaccines may be effective in reducing or preventing transmission. Fauci said. “There were some studies that indicated a very positive trend, which should be verified and supported by other studies.” Citing data from Spain and Israel, Fauci said research is “starting to point to the fact” that vaccines not only protect people from diseases – including those caused by the variants – but also from becoming contagious. “When it’s your turn to get vaccinated, get vaccinated,” Fauci said. “Not only is it beneficial to you, your family and your community, but it will have a very important impact on the dynamics of the outbreak in our country.” On Ash Wednesday, Mardi Gras is put upside down by the pandemic. The spread of COVID-19 is affecting religious traditions on the first day of the fasting season. The Vatican asked Catholic priests to skip the traditional sign of the cross with ashes on their foreheads. Some churches offer ashes from SUVs and do-it-yourself ashes packed in bags. The Vatican requires priests to sprinkle ash on the heads of congregants, a common practice in the Vatican and Italy. Reverend Stephen P. Giuliano said, “You cannot see the Pope with ashes on his forehead.” In Our Lady of Lord in Wilmington, Delaware. “They are always placed over his head.” Ash Wednesday comes one day after “Fat Tuesday” – Mardi Gras – which has also seen major changes this year. Parades were canceled and the usually-crowded, partying streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter, were relatively quiet. Instead, locals decorated their homes with festive colors. “Thank you all for embracing the Carnival spirit through your creativity and innovation,” said Mayor Latoya Cantrell, as Bell will fund the search for coronavirus mutations in the United States. Scientists will gain greatly expanded capabilities to identify potential killer mutations of the Coronavirus under the proposed legislation, as a bill approved for discussion last week by the House Energy and Trade Committee would provide $ 1.75 billion for the genetic sequence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is calling for a nationwide network of technology use to track the spread of mutations – such as recently discovered variants in the UK and South Africa – and guide public health countermeasures. Otherwise, Esther Crouvah, who directs the Milken Institute’s FasterCures Initiative, told The Associated Press, in some ways, we’re flying blind. “We don’t understand the spread of mutations that we should be concerned about in the United States,” Biden promotes teacher vaccination. And learning in class 5 days a week President Joe Biden made it clear Tuesday that his goal is for most K-8 public schools to be open “five days a week” by the end of its first 100 days after the White House received criticism for scaling back that goal last week. “I think we’ll get close to that by the end of the first 100 days,” Biden said at a CNN meeting in Milwaukee. Press Secretary Gene Saki said last week that Biden’s goal is to have more than 50% of schools frustrate many parents and open a new line of attack for Republicans. Some teach “in person” at least one day a week – not necessarily reopening completely – by the 100th day of his presidency. But Biden said that statement was inaccurate, recommitting to the goal of fully reopening most K-8 schools. Asked how to get students back into the classroom, Biden said, “We have to vaccinate the teachers.” He also said, “By next Christmas, I think we will be in a completely different circumstance[in terms of normalcy than we are today.” The SAT tests will begin on This spring semester in case of epidemic or health. The College Board, which owns and supervises the exam that many colleges use for admission, has directed school hosts to “make their own decisions about testing and safety standards based on local restrictions,” according to its website. Sites close until test day, but no shutdowns have been posted on the College Board’s closing page. SAT sites, which are often hosted by high schools, are updating exam safety and COVID-19 safety protocols to accommodate thousands of students. Hundreds of test sites have closed throughout The country last spring and fall due to the epidemic. ”While the College Board cannot directly control the capacity and availability of the test center, the non-profit group said in a statement,“ We ​​are working to ensure that as many students as possible can read Dren on testing safely. ” – Carly Q Romalino, Cherry Hill Courier-PostContribution: Ryan Cormier, Delaware News Journal; The Associated Press
