The total includes 343,304 confirmed and 74,535 “probable” infections.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 19,595 as of Thursday, up 125 since Wednesday.

More lies on top of more lies. Complicit in the deaths of hundred of thousands of Americans. Do you think Trump cares?

"Vaccine reserve was already exhausted when Trump administration vowed to release it, dashing hopes of expanded access. States were anticipating a windfall after federal officials said they would stop holding back second doses. But the approach had already changed, and no stockpile exists."
