He concurred Data Centers for Disease Control and Control “CDC”: The number of people who received one dose of vaccines reached about 150 million people, of whom 105 million people got the two doses.
The numbers of people who received full doses of vaccines constitute 32 percent of the population of the United States, and more than 40 percent of those aged 18 years and over, and nearly 70 percent of those over the age of 65.
Despite the improvement in the indicators of injury and death rates, other indicators raise the alarm with regard to a specific group, namely the youth, according to a report published by ShabakaCNN“.
Death rates have decreased from 3,400 deaths per day last January, to less than 700 deaths per day.
The dean of the School of Public Health at Brown University, Doctor Ashish Jha, told CNN that the spread of the virus is now among the “youth” category, especially among people who have not received the vaccine.
The director of the “CDC”, Rochelle Walinsky, had warned last month that young people were more likely to be infected with the virus, and that they would increase hospitalization.
During the past weeks, some cities reported an increase in the number of young people entering hospitals, while the rulers of some states began to send messages to this group to motivate them to register and obtain the vaccine.
In their interview with CNN, experts called for the importance of giving vaccines to young people in order to protect them and help the United States to reach widespread protection.
They indicated that the rate of vaccination campaigns during the past days has slowed as there has become a challenge in convincing more Americans to get the vaccine.
US officials are counting on continuing the vaccinations to exceed 70 percent of those aged 18 years and over, with the aim of returning to a semblance of normal life.
It is expected that the US Food and Drug Administration “FDA” will issue instructions and recommendations regarding whether giving the vaccine to those over the age of 12 is safe or not.
And American states began to lift restrictions related to the pandemic, such as Florida and New York, after the improvement in the numbers of people who received Corona vaccines in them.
