Coronavirus cases have been dropping across the globe this month following a weekslong surge that sent infection and hospitalization rates soaring, especially in the U.S.
Despite declining cases, health experts worry that a new virus variant could drive up cases once again.
The Biden administration recently announced a website that will serve as a one-stop platform for Americans to access COVID tests, vaccines and treatments and status updates on infection rates where they live. The president announced the website’s rollout during the Wednesday news briefing.
Biden is also received his second COVID-19 booster shot Wednesday, just after the Food and Drug Administration authorized an extra dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for Americans 50 years old and older -- as long as it’s been at least four months since their last vaccination.
