Dr. Celine Gounder says there is a faulty expectation that Covid vaccines should be “perfect” when that’s “just not realistic.” But they are highly effective, as Robby Soave says first-hand: He describes having a mild case of Covid after being vaccinated and says “I feel completely fine today” thanks to the vaccine.
Dr. Celine Gounder warns that some health officials and news outlets have been “declaring ‘mission accomplished’ much too soon.” Covid will be a fact of life for the foreseeable future: “We have to learn to live with it. And vaccines are how we learn to live with it.”
More than 675,000 people in the United States have died from Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University. That surpasses the estimated US death toll from the 1918 flu pandemic, the deadliest pandemic of the 20th century. CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports.
The latest data from the Union Health Ministry in India said that 26,115 new cases of the Covid-19 were reported in the last 24 hours. The death count climbed to 4,45,358 with 252 more fatalities, according to the data.
