The U.S. continues to lead the world with a total of 46 million cases and 747,033 deaths. The U.S. is still averaging about 1,300 deaths a day, although cases and hospitalizations are declining. A judge on Monday suspended a Dec. 31 deadline for Chicago police officers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 but didn't interfere with a requirement that they be regularly tested, "The principal risk to those who are unvaccinated is to themselves and to others who choose to be unvaccinated," the judge said. The judge noted that COVID-19 has killed many officers nationwide. "In light of that terrible sacrifice, the police unions' request just to have their grievances heard seems a pretty modest task," Mitchell said. India is second by cases after the U.S. at 34.3 million and has suffered 458,437 deaths. Brazil has second highest death toll at 607,922 and 21.8 million cases. In Europe, Russia has the most fatalities at 235,318 deaths, followed by the U.K. at 141,098.
