U.S. Records 100,000 Coronavirus Hospitalizations for 40th Straight Day

The United States on Sunday recorded more than 100,000 coronavirus-related hospitalizations for the 40 consecutive day.

The Covid Tracking Project reported 129,229 hospitalizations, even though that was only the sixth-highest daily total during the pandemic, according to CNN.

The rising numbers have experts calling for a more robust vaccination plan from the federal government.

More than 25 million doses of coronavirus vaccines have been distributed nationwide, but only about 9 million people have been vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Trump administration said last year at least 20 million people will have been inoculated by the end of 2020 but that didn’t occur.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, says vaccination distribution has to get better.

“We really need to get this vaccine out more quickly, because this is really out only tool,” Gottlieb said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, CNN reported. “We need to acknowledge that it’s not working. We need to hit the reset and adopt a new strategy in trying to get that out to patients.”

As of Monday, the U.S. has reported roughly 22.4 million coronavirus cases and 375,000 virus-related deaths — both tops globally — according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker
