COVID-19 UPDATE: United States passes 6 million cases, although number could be much greater

COVID-19

Just three weeks after surpassing 5 million COVID-19 cases, the U.S. quietly rolled past 6 million cases within the past week. The actual number of infections is projected to be far greater. That and more in the Wayne County Report for September 1, 2020.

With the pressure on to alleviate the crisis, FDA chief Stephen Hahn says his agency could authorize use of a vaccine before completion of Phase Three trials now being conducted by multiple drug companies.

“Our emergency use authorization is not the same as a full approval,” Hahn said, adding that "this is going to be a science, medicine, data decision. This is not going to be a political decision.”

Countywide health data for August 31, 2020 indicated that Taylor had five new confirmed cases of COVID-19 to up its total overall to 967, and registered one new death, upping that total to 75.
