An Associated Press analysis shows that some of the least-populated states, including Wyoming, with relatively few coronavirus cases received an out-sized proportion of the $150 billion in federal money that was designed to address virus-related expenses. Gordon is proposing using a portion of the money for direct help for businesses that have suffered because of government-imposed shutdowns and shrunken demand.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on January 25 local time that the current shortage of coronavirus vaccines in New York City is urgent and urgent supplies are needed.

“At present, all major vaccination sites are ready, but the problem is that there is not enough vaccine supplies,” de Blasio said.

So far, the city has only 1900 doses left, and an additional 107,000 doses are expected to be replenished this week.

Many appointments have been postponed due to the shortage of vaccines.

According to de la Blasio, the probability of testing positive for COVID-19 in New York City is 8.44%.
