Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden: ‘The War Against Covid-19 Is Far From Won'” – below is their description.
The U.S. is on pace to soon administer 3 million doses a day of Covid-19 vaccine, as the supply increases and states widen eligibility.
After stalling at about 2.5 million doses a day, the rate of shots administered in the U.S. has started to again climb. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the U.S. reported a total of more than 10 million shots in arms — a record three-day stretch that helped push up the average rate, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker.
On Monday, the U.S. reported 2.4 million doses administered. Mondays are typically slower days for vaccine reporting in the U.S., with the previous record on a Monday about 2 million doses.
Doses are counted when they’re reported, not when they’re administered. With Monday’s total, the current 7-day average of doses administered is 2.76 million a day.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
