At least one in five Americans have now been infected with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, but the number is likely higher, including secondary to unreported asymptomatic cases, according to The Hill. The United States had its first confirmed case of COVID-19 reported 731 days ago on Jan. 21, 2020, but now has had over 70 million confirmed COVID-19 cases with over 866,000 deaths as of this Friday, according to The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, which is a continuously updated source of COVID-19 data. The center reported approximately 210 million Americans are fully vaccinated for COVID-19, which is 64% of the United States population, but the percentage varies significantly depending on locality, from as low as 49 % in both Alabama and Wyoming to 87% in Washington, D.C.
