Guardian: The United States has donated more than 400m vaccine doses to 112 countries, marking a major milestone in the White House’s goal of donating 1.2bn vaccine doses under Joe Biden’s direction.
In a press briefing on Wednesday, the White House Covid-19 response coordinator, Jeff Zients, said the donation is four times larger than that of any other country.
Zients also revealed that the country hit another major milestone this week, with 70% of eligible seniors in the US having now received their booster shot. Half of all eligible adults in the country are now boosted.
“This is significant progress, as the doctors and data have made crystal clear. Vaccinations and boosters provide the best protection,” Zients said.
The daily averages of cases and hospital admissions have fallen over the past week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The current seven-day average of Covid-19 cases is approximately 692,400 cases a day, a 6% decrease from the previous week, while the seven-day average of hospital admissions is about 19,800 a day, an 8% decrease.
However, the figure for seven-day average daily deaths is about 2,200 a day, an increase of 21%.
“These data demonstrate that Covid-19 disease severity appears to be lower with the Omicron variant than with prior variants,” saidDr Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC. “Although it’s encouraging that Omicron appears to be causing less severe disease, it is important to remember that we are still facing a high overall burden of disease.
“Milder does not mean mild,” the director added. “Now is the time to do what we know works: wear a mask, get vaccinated and get boosted.” Read more…

I recall reading on VT when the vaccines first came out 60 million went to a country unique to all other nations in the world, and those doses weren’t officially donated or paid for. That represents 15% of 400 million to one nation compared 400 million to 112 nations. No telling where they got the rest to double Vax and double boost 90% of their special population. I am sure they made a pretty penny as it was also said they sold half of the early doses to Dubai. If we are keeping track of numbers here.
The US of Zion does not keep track of anything going to Tel Aviv. Except the annual bill for “aid” put up the taxpayers rectum. They can have my useless boosters too. The wrapping paper is coming off the Covid fairy tale.
Please send your booster to Tehran instead of Tel Aviv. The way Israel conceals the problem is by not divulging the sheer numbers of unvaccinated Hasidic and settlers who travel the world everyday providing phony PCR tests every time they cross a border. Bunch of them were caught as they entered Israel just recently but as usual the suppressed the news.
The case is a great ammo for your cause always quoted.
Hopefully the government of these countries care enough for their people and poured these down the drain where they belong.
