The end of the pandemic may be in sight. President Joe Biden, in a speech to the National Institute of Health, announced that the United States is “on track to have enough supply for 300 million Americans by the end of July.” Although Biden warned that the death toll is likely to reach 500,000 in March.
This is a faster timeline than was previously expected. It was originally thought that the U.S. wouldn’t reach an adequate amount of doses until the end of July. Now, Pfizer and Moderna will deliver 100 million doses by the end of May with an additional 200 million by the end of July.
Oddly enough, Biden suggested Americans wear masks “through the next year,” even though theoretically the vaccine should eliminate the threat of the virus.
Biden also said the U.S. should be able to accomplish his goal of having 100 million doses administered by the end of his first 100 days in office.
BREAKING: "We've now purchased enough vaccine supply to vaccinate all Americans," President Biden says after announcing the purchase of 200M more coronavirus vaccines (100M Moderna, 100M Pfizer).
