Pfizer Inc.’s Covid-19 vaccine has been approved by the United States of America for emergency use. This brings some hope and cheer. However, the number of Americans to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity is high and will take several months.
The U.S. has also doubled its order of Moderna’s vaccine. Modena is planning to ship vaccines to Europe this month. However, it will not be distributed till the company gets it approved.
Unfortunately, U.S. deaths and infections are setting a daily high. U.S. is heading towards dismal figure of 300,000 deaths. This time around New York surge is less deadly but still deep.
Wearing masks and social distancing is still particularly important as the pandemic will slow down with vaccinations, but vaccination will need to continue up to mid next year for a new normal.
Some of the other highlights around the world are as follows:
Germany’s infections and deaths have retreated after a Friday high
South Korea may add more social distancing measures
Bars and restaurants in Tokyo may have limited opening hours
Iran recorded its lowest infections in six weeks
Global cases exceed 71 million with over 1.59 million deaths
Swedish ICU’s are short staffed as frontline COVID-19 health workers quit posts.
Vaccines are currently the best hope to end the pandemic, but no timeline is available as yet
