USA surpasses 700,000 COVID-19 deaths

Global News shows that more than 700,000 thousand people have died from COVID-19 in the USA since March 2020. This pandemic is now the deadliest in the country’s history, with a death toll even higher than the 1918 Spanish Flu.

It comes as the USA Supreme Court weighs in on vaccine mandates, and as California's Governor takes extraordinary steps to keep school children safe. 

As Jennifer Johnson reports, while new cases and hospitalizations are starting to decline, there are fears that another variant could follow Delta's deadly surge.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are really 4 certain types of flu viruses: influenza A, B, C, and D. The seasonal flu viruses that humans face every winter season in the United States are caused by so-called human influenza A.

Type A influenza is generally considered worse than type B influenza. This is because the symptoms are often really more severe in type A influenza than in type B influenza. Type A influenza is more common than type B influenza.

For 2020-2021, trivalent (3-component) egg-based vaccines are recommended to contain:

A/Guangdong-Maonan/SWL1536/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus

A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2)-like virus

B/Washington/02/2019 (B/Victoria lineage)-like virus
