The U.S. has averaged 67,868 cases a day in the past week, down 26% from two weeks ago. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Saturday granted emergency authorization to the vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson, that has the advantage of being a one-dose regimen that does not require the refrigeration required by the existing vaccines. The move has bolstered hopes that vaccination can now speed up. Brazil has the second highest death toll at 254,942 and is third by cases at 10.6 million.
