Rhode Island becomes 8th US state to reach wax milestone

Washington: Rhode Island has become the eighth US state to give at least one COVID-19 vaccine to 70 percent of its adult population, the latest official data shows.
The other seven states are Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Vermont, Xinhua reported.
In response to the achievement, state Governor Daniel McKee tweeted on Sunday: “Way to go, Rhode Island.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), these eight states have reached the milestones that President Joe Biden promised to meet nationwide on July 4 or before Independence Day.
Currently, about half a million Americans will need to receive their first dose of vaccine each day to reach Biden’s goal.
Data from the CDC show that so far, more than 61 percent of American adults have received at least one Kovid-19 shot and more than 49 percent have been fully vaccinated.
However, “demand for a shot is low – and experts worry that slow vaccination may mean some communities do not reach the broad security levels that officials expect and will continue to face the outbreak”, CNN A report on Sunday said.
According to CDC data, in the past one week, approximately 1.8 million vaccine doses have been given every day, 46 percent less than the peak rate of around 3.4 million per day in mid-April.
As of Monday morning, the United States has recorded a total of 33,116,798 confirmed cases and 589,890 deaths.
Currently two elevations are the highest in the world.
