“Vaccinations in the U.S. began Dec. 14 with health-care workers, and so far 18.4 million shots have been given, according to a state-by-state tally by Bloomberg and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last week, an average of 939,973 doses per day were administered.”
Also check out the graphs at COVID-19 Vaccine Projections The site has several interactive graphs related to US COVID vaccinations including a breakdown of how many have had one shot, and how many have had both shots.
It is possible the 7-day average cases has peaked. Stay safe! I’m looking forward to not posting this data in a few months.
The US is now averaging close to 2 million tests per day. Based on the experience of other countries, for adequate test-and-trace (and isolation) to reduce infections, the percent positive needs to be under 5% (probably close to 1%), so the US has far too many daily cases – and percent positive – to do effective test-and-trace.
There were 1,919,138 test results reported over the last 24 hours.
There were 184,864 positive tests.
Almost 64,000 US deaths have been reported so far in January. See the graph on US Daily Deaths here.
This data is from the COVID Tracking Project.
The percent positive over the last 24 hours was 9.6% (red line is 7 day average). The percent positive is calculated by dividing positive results by total tests (including pending).

It is possible cases and hospitalizations have peaked, but are still at a very high level.
