About 45 percent of Americans have been fully vaccinated, but interest in vaccination has declined.
The number of deaths from COVID-19 in the United States fell below 300 per day for the first time since March 2020.
Meanwhile, the vaccination campaign has passed another encouraging milestone: 150 million Americans have been fully vaccinated.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coronavirus became the third leading cause of death in the United States last year, behind cardiovascular and cancer diseases.
But now that the disease’s grip has been loosened, it has fallen down the list of major “killers.”
According to the CDC, more Americans now die every day from accidents, chronic lower respiratory diseases, strokes, or Alzheimer’s disease than from COVID-19.
According to statistics, more than 600 thousand people in the United States died from the coronavirus, while in the world this figure is approaching 3.9 million, although it is believed that the real figures in both cases are much higher.
About 45 percent of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, the CDC said.
More than 53 percent of Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine. However, to the disappointment of health experts, the demand for vaccinations in the United States has fallen.
The number of new cases is averaging 11,400 a day, up from a quarter of a million a day in early January.
The average daily number of deaths dropped to about 293, down from more than 3,400 in mid-January, Johns Hopkins University said.
At the peak of the epidemic in the state, about 800 people died from the coronavirus every day.
Some states are worse off than others.
For example, Missouri leads the nation in COVID-19 cases per capita and ranks fourth after California, Florida, and Texas in the number of new cases over the past week, despite a significantly smaller population.
Meanwhile, due to bureaucratic hurdles and other factors, President Joe Biden will probably not be able to meet a commitment to provide 80 million doses of the vaccine to other countries around the world by the end of June, officials said.
