The CDC has issued a warning to the general public as the COVID case rises, this shows COVID-19 is not really done causing harm. Also in the US, around 70 per cent of adults have been first-round vaccinated. This was announced by the White House on Monday. Joe Biden had set the target to reach by the 4th of July. The white house administration on Monday announced “Milestone Monday”. Cyrus Shahpar the COVID-19 director of government said the average seven-day vaccination had amped up to 32,000 first dose administration of the vaccine. This number was recorded as highest after Independence Day.

The sudden spike in Corona was termed as the pandemic of unvaccinated by the health care officials. This was the right observation because the areas that reported the highest COVID cases were the lowest vaccination rate. Nearly all hospitalizations were among those who denied getting vaccinated. Dr Rochelle Walensky, CDC director said communities that were fully vaccinated were comparatively doing well. Also, breakthrough infections among vaccinated were very few. She also said that day by day unvaccinated are at higher risk. Though we want the pandemic to be over soon and the world to heal, clearly pandemic is not done with us yet.

The latest vaccination figures published by CDC showed that the demand for vaccines shot up by 28% from previous weeks. The new average per day vaccination is 673,185. A senior from the White House administration said that because of some reports published by few media channels the white house administration was under tremendous stress. They were worried that breakthrough cases may lead to large vaccination hesitancy among people.

Jeff Zients, White house coronavirus response coordinator said in June that country may require few more weeks to be at least partially vaccinated. There was still a huge reluctance in the age group of 18 and 26. Florida has become the current hotspot of COVID-19. Here there is an increase in young adult cases. Many teens who are eligible for vaccination reported they chose not to get vaccinated. This is a horrifying situation for the nation. There is a rise in paediatric hospitalizations.
