A portion of a mural, which displays images of people who have died of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), is seen in Joni Zavitsanos' art studio as the country reaches 600,000 deaths in Houston, Texas, U.S., June 10, 2021. A Houston artist, still deep in grief, is working on a collage of images of people who died in her community. She spent her wedding day last year with 13 people in person while an aunt conducted the ceremony via Zoom. The United States passed 600,000 COVID-19 deaths on Monday, about 15% of the world's total coronavirus fatalities of around 4 million, a Reuters tally shows. And yet, here she was, greeting family she had not been able to see for 15 months as the pandemic raged.

It took 113 days to go from 500,000 total U.S. COVID-19 deaths to 600,000 - the second slowest 100,000-death jump since the pandemic began. The U.S. seven-day COVID-19 death average has fallen by almost 90% from its peak in January. The average seven-day COVID-19 hospitalization number has also plummeted since April due to vaccinations. The rate of hospitalization due to COVID-19 increased among adolescents aged 12 to 17 in April to 1.3 per 100,000 people from a lower rate in mid-March, the agency reported. read moreAs of Sunday, nearly 52% of the U.S. population has received their first vaccine dose, according to the CDC.

REUTERS/Callaghan O'Hare/File PhotoA U.S. federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by 117 workers at a Texas hospital over its requirement that they be vaccinated against COVID-19. U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes upheld Houston Methodist Hospital's policy mandating employees be vaccinated, in a ruling issued on Saturday. "Bridges can freely choose to accept or refuse a Covid-19 vaccine; however, if she refuses, she will simply need to work somewhere else." In a statement, Houston Methodist called the lawsuit frivolous and said it was pleased with the judge's decision.

But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

REUTERS/Callaghan O'HareTwo former employees of Balfour Beatty Communities, one of the U.S. military’s largest private landlords, have pleaded guilty to fraud for helping the company secure millions in bonuses while covering up poor housing conditions at several Air Force bases, the Department of Justice announced. Two years ago Reuters reports described how Balfour Beatty employees falsified maintenance documents at Air Force bases to help the company qualify for incentive fee payments, citing five former employees who said they falsified records, company emails and internal Air Force communications. The reports prompted an investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the Inspector General’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service. Rick Cunefare, a former Balfour Beatty regional manager who oversaw bases in Oklahoma, Texas and other states, pleaded guilty earlier this year to major fraud and faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. “Cunefare admitted that the false information deceived the U.S. Air Force,” the DOJ said.

Bezos said Monday that he plans to fly to the edge of space on a Blue Origin rocket in July. Amazon founder and fellow centi-billionaire Jeff Bezos has his own space company — Blue Origin — and he said Monday that he plans to fly on its inaugural human flight to the edge of space in July. Richard Branson, whose Virgin Group dabbles in everything from airlines to healthcare, launched a commercial spaceflight company of his own called Virgin Galactic. And in a 2018 interview with Matthias Döpfner, the CEO of Insider's parent company Axel Springer, Bezos called the rocket company his "most important work." In 2017, it spun off a company called Virgin Orbit, which is working to send satellites into orbit using a similar air-launch system.

(Reuters) - Texas lawmakers are set to vote on a sweeping election reform bill that limits early hours to cast ballots, bans drive-through polling sites and places new requirements on voters, the latest attempt by Republicans to impose voting restrictions at the state level. FILE PHOTO: Voters wait in line to cast their ballot in the Democratic primary at a polling station in Houston, Texas, U.S. March 3, 2020. President Joe Biden said in a statement on Saturday that the legislation in Texas “attacks the sacred right to vote.”“It’s wrong and un-American,” Biden said. Texas State Senator Bryan Hughes, the Republican who authored the Texas Election Integrity Bill, said in a statement on Friday that the legislation will provide security and accessibility at the polls. Republican lawmakers across the nation are pursuing tougher voting restrictions in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s false claims of election fraud.

REUTERS/Callaghan O'Hare(Reuters) - U.S. consumer sentiment unexpectedly dropped in early May as inflation worries sapped confidence in what had been a rapidly brightening economic outlook, a key survey showed on Friday. The University of Michigan’s Consumer Sentiment Index fell 5.5 points to a reading of 82.8, pulling back from the highest level in roughly a year in April. Economists polled by Reuters had been looking for a reading of 90.4, which would have marked the third straight monthly gain. Consumers’ assessment of their current situation and their future outlook both soured, while their estimates for inflation shot up to 4.6% for this year and to 3.1% for the next 5 years - the highest in more than a decade for both.

ET Covid-19 Live Updates: U.S. Sets New Death and Daily Case Records There were at least 4,111 deaths and 280,028 new cases in the country on Thursday. Health officials hope the increased use of rapid tests will help in the fight against the pandemic. Dr. Giroir projected that the country’s capacity for non-laboratory testing could more than double by June. But rapid tests typically have cost and convenience on their side — benefits that Dr. Giroir repeatedly underscored in a call with reporters. He noted the slow and bumpy rollout of testing in the United States, where speedy tests results are still a relative rarity.

Public health officials say that about 25 percent of healthcare workers are declining the vaccine. De Blasio said New York City’s public hospitals have thousands of available shots due in part to healthcare workers declining vaccinations. Cuomo argues that all healthcare workers should be vaccinated first before the state opens up inoculations to other residents. “It is not necessary to vaccinate all individuals in one phase before moving on to the next phase,” Judy Persichilli, the state’s health commissioner, said at a news briefing alongside the governor.

(Reuters) - U.S. coronavirus cases crossed the 20 million mark on Friday as officials seek to speed up vaccinations and a more infectious variant surfaces in Colorado, California and Florida. The U.S. rate of new COVID-19 infections increased in the second half of last year. An analysis of Reuters data shows it took 200 days to reach the first 5 million cases, 93 days to go from 5 million cases to 10 million, 31 days from 10 million to 15 million cases and only 25 days to go from 15 million to 20 million cases. California has the most total cases of any state, with about 2.28 million infections followed by Texas with 1.76 million cases and Florida with 1.32 million cases. About 2.8 million Americans received a COVID-19 vaccine by Dec. 31, falling far short of a 20 million target.

The coronavirus has surged to become the leading cause of death in the US again for the first time since spring. The COVID-19 death rate in the US is equivalent to a new 9/11 every 1.2 days. The coronavirus pandemic has become the number-one cause of death once again in the US, a position it also held during the spring. COVID-19 probably won't be the overall leading cause of death for 2020. For people aged 85 and older, the coronavirus was the second leading cause of death, after heart disease.

Rhode Island, Tennessee and Ohio had the highest new cases per capita in the country last week, according to the Reuters analysis. Out of 50 states, 32 had a positive test rate of 10% or higher. The World Health Organization considers positive test rates above 5% concerning because it suggests there are more cases in the community that have not yet been uncovered.
