Prayer #274: For a Hopeful Drop in COVID-19 Mortality Rate Soon in the United States
Thus far, about 1 million of the 9 million vaccine doses received by the states have been administered, as the vaccine is distributed to counties, hospitals, and facilities in need. 20 million doses should be distributed by year's end, though due to the time lag between the distribution and administering of the drugs, it will be well into the new year before 20 million people have received them. Things are still on track, federal health authorities believe, to have 100 million immunizations by the end of March. Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed, believes that two weeks after 1 million higher-risk people have received both doses of the vaccine, the United States should begin to see a decrease in the COVID mortality rate, which would be in January.
Pray that indeed, there would be a decrease soon in the mortality rate from COVID-19 as some of the high-risk population receives its second dose early next month. Pray for the continued smooth distribution of the vaccines across the country.
