The United States reached 100,000 in May 2020, and 200,000 a few months later, in September. The milestone has been anticipated and talked about for weeks, and a New York Times database of Covid deaths surpassed one million deaths late Thursday, marking the somber moment. The Times considers that precaution an essential characteristic of its data set. But it means that some deaths may be omitted if their counties of residence are not clearly indicated, and as a result, the Times’s count may differ from others’ totals.
The CDC also recommends a single-dose Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot for children ages 12 to 17 years, at least five months after getting their second dose of that vaccine. As of now, individuals in this age group are only authorized to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. The CDC recommends a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine booster for all adults ages 18 years and older. Adults may select any vaccine for their booster, either the same or different than their initial vaccine.

That compares with 17 in our last update.One known case living on ASU campus in Tempe; 3 cases involve students on other ASU campuses. The original Omicron variant, and the BA.2 subvariant of Omicron are the dominant strains of the virus in Arizona. These strains are more easily spread than prior variants while displaying a lower individual risk of severe outcomes, particularly for those who follow CDC guidance for vaccination and boosters. There is no cost to health care providers for COVID-19 vaccines received from the federal government, therefore, providers are expected to submit a claim for only vaccine administration to the individual’s health plan for payment.
The new alert system Mr. Adams approved in March recommends instituting a mask mandate for public indoor settings at the current risk level. But some health experts have criticized the mayor’s approach and fear that letting the virus spread broadly could hurt the city’s most vulnerable residents. They believe the city should bring back mask and vaccine mandates, but acknowledge that it would be politically difficult to do so. The virus arrived in the United States by early 2020, setting off five distinct waves of new cases over the 26 months that followed.
