Michigan has reported more than 7.5 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered from Tuesday, with 55.6% of residents aged 16 and over have received at least one dose during 44.2% are considered fully vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 32.8 million cases have been reported in the United States, with over 584,000 dead reported by the virus. Worldwide, more than 1.3 billion doses of vaccine have been administered.
Around the world, more than 161 million people have been confirmed infected and over 3.3 million died. More than 94 million people have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University. The real numbers are certainly much higher, due to the limited testing, the different ways nations count the dead, and the deliberate underreporting of some governments.
