The United States will reach this week the goal set by Joe Biden to inject 200 million of the Kovid-19 vaccine in the first 100 days of its announcement by the White House on Wednesday.
A White House official, on the condition of anonymity, said the Democratic president would make a speech in which he said “the United States will reach 200 million doses this week.”
The target will be achieved a little sooner, which is the 100th day of Biden’s mandate next weekend.
The United States, the country with the most deaths from Kovid-19, carried out an effective vaccination campaign, ahead of some European countries and neighboring Canada.
When he took office on January 20, Joe Biden promised to deliver 100 million doses of the vaccine in its first 100 days.
On March 25, when the country was far ahead of its targets, the President doubled that figure, setting it at 200 million.
“I know it’s ambitious, twice our original goal,” said Joe Biden. “But no other country in the world has come close to what we are doing.”
All US adults are eligible for vaccination from April 19. The increase in the number of Kovid-19 cases in some parts of the country, particularly Michigan, is reducing the joyous climate in the White House.
However, the number of deaths at the national level to improve immunization and care of the elderly remains.
