The U.S. has reached almost 600,000 COVID-19 deaths and has reported more than 33.4 million confirmed cases of the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The US passed the 500,000 death mark at the end of February, just under four months ago.

"My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one", he said, speaking on Monday in Brussels as the Johns Hopkins University tally ticked close to 600,000.

The milestone follows a stepped-up drive that injected a daily average of 650,000 doses, rising to a record 850,000 on one day, boosted by increased supply and people's growing willingness in the wake of a slow start with limited supplies.

Similarly, the official said, they have dispatched 50,000 doses of various vaccines including 30,000 doses of Sinopharm, and 10,000 doses each of Cansino and AstraZeneca to Punjab to continue the vaccination process at its mega vaccination center and also advised the provincial authorities to divert the unutilised vaccine stocks to its mega center in Lahore.

Israeli police officers detain a Palestinian man during clashes that erupted ahead of a planned march by Jewish ultranationalists. Hamas spokesman Mohammed Hamadeh had earlier warned Israeli's "not to engage in a military escalation on the basis of the march".

The latest data available, from earlier this month, show the region has the lowest proportion of staff vaccinated outside London.

The United States has racked up by far the largest death toll of the pandemic, ahead of Brazil and India.

The company that administered the doses said there was no danger from the expired shots. On June 2, total hospitalized patients fell below 20,000 for the first time since June 24, 2020. According to the union, more than a third of care home workers indicated they would consider leaving their jobs if they were forced to be vaccinated.

Yasmin Rashid on Tuesday said that there is no shortage of coronavirus vaccinations in the province and there is nothing to be anxious about. These include free childcare and rides to vaccination centers, extended Friday night hours at pharmacies and the chance to win $1 million or college scholarships in a lottery.

Biden has set a goal of 70 percent of adults to have received at least one shot by the national holiday of July 4, but the program may fall short of that goal.
