It’s hard to believe that we were glued to our television sets two years ago, watching the growing impact of the virus we know as COVID-19. With a second virus variation on the rise, the fight to end COVID-19 endures. Arizona Clinical Trials intends to see it through like the numerous other entities that have joined forces. Until then, we are still your COVID-19 resource center.

COVID-19 by the Numbers

  • More than 277 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and more than 5 million associated deaths globally.
  • The United States has had more than 51 million confirmed cases and over 812,000 associated deaths.
  • More than 70 percent of U.S. adults are fully vaccinated with vaccines available to ages 5 and up and boosters for ages 16 and older.

What’s New

  • On December 16th, the CDC made the recommendation that individuals still needing vaccination should avoid the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. This was in response to a small blood clot risk which has hospitalized 54 people and taken the lives of 9.
  • Researchers found the Omicron variant grows 70 times faster than the delta one in the bronchial tubes.
  • Officials are still uncertain how many boosters are necessary to effectively fight the virus.
  • Data shows deaths from COVID-19 in 2021 surpassed deaths in 2020.
  • Vaccine mandates prevail in some areas and meet stiff opposition in others in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. For example, a federal judge blocked a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers, while the U.S Navy says that sailors forgoing the vaccine would face discharge starting in 2022.
