U.S. Coronavirus Death Toll Hits Record as Governors Press for Faster Vaccinations

The United States logged 3,775 coronavirus-related deaths Tuesday, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker, topping a daily record set less than a week ago.

As infections and deaths continue to climb, some states have resorted to deploying the National Guard to assist with lagging vaccination efforts.

Governors such as Maryland’s Larry Hogan and North Carolina’s Roy Cooper are using National Guard members for their respective states’ vaccine rollout, CNN reported Wednesday.

So far, more than 17 million doses of coronavirus vaccines have been distributed nationwide, but only about 4.8 million people have received the first dose, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As of Wednesday, the U.S. has roughly 21 million coronavirus cases and about 357,000 deaths, both tops globally, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
