COVID-19 cases in the U.S. are on the rise, again, with the seven-day moving average reaching 100,000. The White House has stressed the need for additional funding to combat COVID-19 and has been warning about the consequences of not getting it. What is pushing the latest wave? How dire is the situation? Given the U.S. just announced $40 billion in new aid to Ukraine, is fighting COVID a priority for the U.S. government, or not?
