1/ The United States surpassed 7 million confirmed cases of COVID-19. The U.S. reached six million cases less than a month ago, on Aug. 30. The World Health Organization, meanwhile, warned that the global death toll could double to 2 million people before a vaccine is widely administered. “If we look at losing 1 million people in nine months and then we just look at the realities of getting vaccines out there in the next nine months, it’s a big task for everyone involved,” World Health Organization expert Mike Ryan, the executive director of WHO’s health emergencies program, said. Dr. Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, said that a “large proportion” of the U.S. will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus this year, challenging Trump’s repeated assertions that a vaccine will be ready by Election Day.
