With nearly 100 million Americans fully vaccinated and the lowest levels of new coronavirus infection since October, the US may have achieved or reached a critical tipping point.
While some researchers argue it is too early to speak, more and more epidemiologists, infectious disease researchers and public health experts think the vaccination campaign may help the country win the competition with the coronavirus, according to the report. Reported on NPR.org.
“I think we̵7;ve reached a turning point, we’ve changed the angle of this latest wave, and I think the worst day of the epidemic is behind us,” said Ashish Jha, Dean of Brown University School. Public health claims

However, in places like Oregon, Washington and parts of Colorado and Arizona, infections spread rapidly, leading experts warn people to abandon protection too quickly.
“There was a fourth power surge, whether it has dropped and I still can’t know it, it doesn’t feel this bad, because it’s much smaller than the third time, it’s a little bigger than the second time, and maybe it’s not over yet. Said Thomas Frieden, former CDC Director.
