The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions says COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to drop in the United States, with this week’s seven-day average of cases registering at less that 13,300, the first time it has dropped below 15,000 since late March, 2020.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says the seven-day average of new hospitalizations is just over 2200 per day, and yesterday, the U.S. registered 379 deaths due to COVID-19.

“Each week, there are more and more data to demonstrate the impact of vaccination has on preventing disease and moving us out of this pandemic,” Walensky said Tuesday.

The CDC director said more than 85 percent of Americans over 65 have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 75 percent of that age group have received both doses.

“Still, we have a lot more work to do, especially in younger age groups,” she said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci told reporters the COVID-19 Delta variant, first identified in India, has become the dominant strain in the United Kingdom, amounting to approximately 60 percent of new cases there.

Fauci said the Delta variant has been reported in some 60 countries, including the United States. He told reporters it may be associated with increased disease severity compared to the Alpha variant. He said although a single dose of the vaccine has shown less effectiveness against the Delta variant, two doses of the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines have shown greater effectiveness against it.

Fauci said boosting the U.S. vaccination rate will help guard against the Delta variant gaining a greater hold here.

“We cannot let that happen in the United States,” he said.

“Make sure you get that second dose. And for those who have been not vaccinated yet, please get vaccinated.”

Finally, Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, a senior adviser to the COVID response team said the U.S. Department of Transportation announced that 350 transit systems across the U.S. are offering free rides to vaccination sites.

“We want to give everyone in the country as many free transit options as possible by subway, bus, ride share,” she said.

“There are multiple ways to get to and from your shot for free.”

  1. Heavenly Father, remove this demonic, vile creature from society, and bring him to a swift justice for his crimes. This demon has no powers over us through Jesus Christ. We rebuke you Satan and all your demons that plague our governments that come to kill and destroy Gods children. We thank you for hearing our prayers, and know this will be done. In Jesus Christ's name I pray. Amen.

  2. So what the creator of the virus is saying the vaccine people are getting is no good and I'm saying the vaccine is not fit for human's and not FDA approved

  3. Fouci is stuck on his self so proud he made killer diseasea and proud that him and dwmocrats ready toik there protectiin a long time ago

  6. A snake oil salesman. Helps create the stuff that makes you sick. Then tells you how great the snake oil is. Then tells you how your tax dollars going to pay for it.
    So they create illness. They provide the remedy. They tell you it's for free and you're paying for it. Beautiful

  7. Fraudci under the NIH funded $3.7 million to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for dangerous coronavirus gain of function study. Did he create the Delta variant as well?

  8. If you’re Pro-Vax or Anti-Vax I don’t care. But, listen up to what I’m about to say.
    I am a machine reliability expert in the manufacturing segment of our economy. We have exhausted our supply of spare parts to keep machinery going. The back orders are going out for months now. If there are anymore widespread lockdowns or shut downs, our supply chain for daily goods WILL falter.
    We’ve already blown through our reserves.
    Our elected officials need to decide if a disease with a, at worst, 2% mortality rate is worth it.
    WE WILL have a breakdown in the supply chain of essential goods and services if we repeat 2020 over again.
    Let a word to the wise be sufficient.
    P.S. a Polysilicone Plant has blown up in China. MSM is not reporting on this. Expect Semiconductor production to be affected. Making a bad situation worse. We are years away from having a domestic production base again. That’s IF you can find people that actually want to work.
