The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
This week’s “winner” of Who Won the Week is getting people vaccinated for COVID-19.
The United States is working to vaccinate a high percentage of its population against COVID-19 as soon as possible to stop the spread of the disease and end the outbreak in the country.
Since vaccine distribution began in the U.S. on December 14th, more than 101.1 million doses have been administered, reaching almost 20% of the total U.S. population, according to federal data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The U.S. is currently administering over 2.3 million shots a day.
President Biden has repeatedly promised to get 100 million shots into Americans’ arms by his 100th day in office. His pledge appeared ambitious when he first made it before Election Day, but now that more than two million people are being vaccinated a day, the country is on track to surpass Biden’s 100 million goal. And he said on Thursday he would direct the states to make all adults eligible for the coronavirus vaccine by May 1. His aim is that the country would be able to achieve some kind of “normality” by the Independence Day holiday on July 4.
Isn’t it great to have someone in the Oval Office who makes plans for combating COVID-19 and who delivers on them rather than someone who closes his eyes and hopes that a miracle will make it all go away?
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
