The rate of daily Covid-19 infections is declining in 30 states and the District of Columbia, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, and 1 in 3 Americans are now fully vaccinated.
Elsewhere, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data published Friday showed that 45% of the U.S. population have received at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 33% have been fully vaccinated.
Nevertheless, the country’s pace of daily vaccinations has been on the decline for several weeks with the latest daily average of 73,000 shots per day far below the high point of 425,000 in mid-April.
President Joe Biden set a goal last week of having 70% of U.S. adults vaccinated with at least one dose of a Covid vaccine by July 4.
