A CNN Health reports documents that the vaccines are starting to be delivered but slowly. This will be a long road. And right now, the virus is surging like never before.
Freight trucks carrying about 184,275 vials of vaccine departed [Pfizer's Portage Mich] plant Sunday, and the combined 189 boxes of vaccine vials are expected to arrive in all 50 states Monday. Another 3,900 vials are expected to ship later Sunday to United States territories, and 400 boxes packed with about 390,000 vials will ship Monday to arrive Tuesday. There are five doses of vaccine per vial, according to Pfizer.
Surge on top of surge
- Arizona reported its second highest number of new cases Saturday with 8,076, and reached a new
record positivity rate at 25%
, indicating that the viral transmission is increasing faster than the case counts indicate, according to an ongoing study by the University of Arizona's Zuckerman College of Public Health. The California Department of Public Health reported 35,729 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, breaking the previous record set on Friday of 35,468 new cases. For three consecutive days, Florida reported more than 10,000 cases a day before reporting 8,964 cases Sunday, a CNN tally shows. The state has reported 7,000 or more new cases every day this month.
