Personal comment: At the recent pace of improvement, it is possible to achieve all 3 of my criteria before July 4th. Hopefully everyone is part of the solution and is getting vaccinated!
According to the CDC, on Vaccinations. Total administered: 270,832,342, as of yesterday 268,438,666. Day: 2.39 million. (U.S. Capacity is around 4 million per day)
1) 59.4% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose (70% goal by July 4th).
2) 121.8 million Americans are fully vaccinated (160 million goal by July 4th)

Note: I’ll stop posting this daily once all three of these criteria are met:
1) 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, and
2) new cases are under 5,000 per day, and
3) hospitalizations are below 3,000.

And check out COVID Act Now to see how each state is doing.

Over 8,500 US deaths were reported so far in May due to COVID.

The 7-day average is 33,228, down from 34,396 yesterday, and down sharply from the recent peak of 69,881 on April 13, 2021. This is the lowest since June 24, 2020.

COVID-19 HospitalizedThis data is also from the CDC.

The CDC cautions that due to reporting delays, the area in grey will probably increase.

The current 7-day average is 29,024, down from 29,588, reported yesterday, but still above the post-summer surge low of 23,000.
