Transcript for COVID-19 vaccine supplies dwindle as Biden takes control
Okay, Michael, tacking the pandemic, the top of the president's agenda, one year ago the first case was diagnosed in the United States. 25 million more since then, more than 405,000 American lives have been lost passing the number sacrificed in all of World War II. It will climb past 500,000 next month and the president is urging new action today. Good morning, whit. Reporter: George, good morning to you. The Biden administration takes over on one of the deadliest days of the pandemic, nearly 4,400 lives lost in the U.S. In just 24 hours and all of this only adding to the sense of urgency in the vaccine rollout. Here in New York, governor Andrew Cuomo saying that the state will likely burn through its remaining supply of doses in just two days. The NYPD forced to suspend shots for employees and the city says 23,000 vaccination appointments had to be postponed. Moderna and pfizer reportedly producing nearly 10 million doses weekly nationwide as about 1 million people are getting the shot per day. That's now seemingly on pace with president Biden's goal of injecting 100 million doses in 100 days but significant challenges remain, meantime, in California, that state now becomes the first in the country to surpass 3 million covid cases. Okay, whit, thanks very much.
