Her parents, who live in the coastal city of Dalian near Beijing, can’t read the reports in English, so she briefs them on the most important news during their video chats. Inspired by her daughter’s example, Jiang’s mother recently started volunteering with a community testing program in Dalian. Fauci’s colleagues at the National Institutes of Health are doing their own testing to be sure, just as vaccine manufacturers are. Biden emphasized that his administration is doing everything possible to increase vaccine supply.
During a tour of the National Institute of Health’s Viral Pathogenesis Laboratory, where the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was created, Biden said his administration had secured the delivery of 600 million doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines over the next five months, the Associated Press reported. The country is already on pace to exceed Biden’s goal of administering 100 million vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office, with more than 26 million shots delivered during his first three weeks in office, the AP reported.
The trend in the last few weeks have been worse. With more data now in hand, they say they have a 55 to 75 percent degree of confidence in the latest finding.

B.1.1.7 is known to have spread to at least 82 countries and is thought to be transmitted between 35 and 45 percent more easily than other variants of coronavirus already found in the United States, the Times said. If a third coronavirus vaccine, from drugmaker Johnson & Johnson, is approved for emergency use by the U.S. The slow pace is frustrating health officials and a desperate public alike, with only about a third of the first supplies shipped to states used as of Tuesday morning, just over three weeks into the vaccination campaign.

Omicron has emerged as many countries in Europe are already battling a surge in COVID-19 infections, and some have re-introduced restrictions on social activity to try to stop the spread. That doesn’t mean vaccinated people should stop practicing social distancing, the CDC noted. Pharmaceutical companies are tweaking their research to fight the B.1.1.7 variant, she said, and the CDC is monitoring how people who’ve already gotten the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines are faring.
