U.S. COVID-19 Death Tolls Reaches 600,000
The U.S. death toll from COVID-19 eclipsed the 600,000 mark on Tuesday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The 600,000 mark is greater than the population of cities like Milwaukee and Baltimore and nearly equal to the number of Americans who died from cancer in 2019.
The worldwide COVID-19 death toll stands at nearly 3.8 million.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 50% of Americans have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while more than 40% are fully vaccinated. Currently, 65% of American adults are partially vaccinated, short of President Joe Biden’s goal of 70% of July 4.
