The results of having a competent president. Imagine how much more quickly the US would have achieved these milestones had the last guy taken the pandemic seriously from day one.

The virus is still spreading in low vaccination rate states like Arkansas, Georgia Mississippi and Alabama. What do these states all have in common? They are all GOP dominated states that made mask wearing political.

They are also states where public officials (who absolutely know better) embraced the Big Lie that there was any organized voter fraud.

At this point, the best thing to do is to leave everything to Darwin's law of natural selection.

Since late last year, hundreds of millions of inoculations of the vaccines shows that they are miraculously effective, with infinitesimal risk of causing harm themselves to any one person. So, unless there is some medical or access reason for not taking the vaccination, you are a selfish idiot for "choosing" not to be vaccinated, and taking the risk of getting infected with Covid, giving it to others, and contributing to the continued morphing of it into new and more dangerous variants...

yep taking about "milestones" is what people who dont meet targets talk about to distract.

more like Black pepper.

Dont meet a target as Biden almost never does?

create a "milestone" out of thin air and take credit for that.

has there even been any talk about having cases below 300 per day as a "milestone"?

Fewer than 300 deaths a day (Trump "administration" topped out at 300k cases and 3,500 deaths per day) does indeed feel like something of a milestone. Thanks for pointing that out.

Biden still didnt meet any target. enjoy your "milestone" instead.

bait and switch.

the excuses even come before the facts thanks to the liberal media.

see in this article, an excuse then the missed commitment. They really want you to know its not his fault, before they even tell you what happened.

Meanwhile, because of regulatory hurdles and other factors, President Joe Biden is expected to fall short of his commitment to share 80 million vaccine doses with the rest of the world by the end of June, officials said Monday.

The stats for Georgia have been improving since January just like everywhere else in the US.

https://usafacts.org/visualizations/coronavirus-covid-19-spread-map/ Choose the Per 100K view of the map. to see per-population data, not raw numbers which penalizes states with larger populations. Then GA compares to NH and appears to be the best of all the southern states.

BTW, Georgia is the 8th most populated US state, so it makes sense that it would be in the top 10 number of covid cases and deaths based on population alone.

CA, FL, NY, and TX are about 2-4x larger than Georgia.

GA is 2x more populated than AL and SC for reference.

True, but are you really saying this is all because of actions Joe has taken since January?
