More Americans have died of COVID under Biden than Trump: Johns Hopkins:
More Americans have died from COVID-19 during President Biden‘s first nine months in office than during the first nine months of the pandemic under Donald Trump’s presidency, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Despite widely available vaccines and Mr. Biden‘s pledge to handle the coronavirus better than his predecessor after taking office Jan. 20, Johns Hopkins’ Coronavirus Research Center reported that, as of Wednesday afternoon, 353,000 Americans had died this year. That surpassed the 352,000 who died from March 2020, when the pandemic started, to December, when the Food and Drug Administration first gave emergency authorization for vaccines.
In a congressional briefing Wednesday, officials with the Coronavirus Research Center said that although delta variant cases and hospitalizations have declined for several weeks, vaccine hesitancy continues and testing has lagged.
“So I would say the simple strategies are, first, to listen to what the concerns are and try as best as possible to understand them,” said Dr. Bill Moss, the center’s vaccinology lead. “If it’s due to misinformation or disinformation, having the right messenger convey that information to the target audience is really critical, and that’s a person who the community or individual trusts, whether that’s a religious leader or a celebrity or sports figure.” --->READ MORE HERE

Poll: Americans More Concerned with Jobs, Economy than the Coronavirus:
Americans are more concerned with jobs and the economy than the Chinese coronavirus, an Ipsos survey released Thursday found.
The survey asked respondents to rate the “most important problem facing the U.S. today.”
A plurality, 22 percent, chose the “economy, unemployment, and jobs,” as the leading problem facing America. Thirteen percent chose public health, disease, and illness, followed by immigration (12 percent), the healthcare system (9 percent), the environment and climate (8 percent), inequality and discrimination (6 percent), crime or corruption (6 percent), terrorism and extremism (4 percent), and education (4 percent). The remaining causes saw three percent support or less.
That issue — the economy, unemployment, and jobs — also leads across party lines, as 27 percent of Republicans chose it, as did 29 percent of independents and 16 percent of Democrats. However, 16 percent of Democrats also chose public health, disease, and illness. --->READ MORE HERE
