Covid-19 surgeThe disease caused by the novel coronavirus has killed at least 551,000 people in the United States since February 2020 and has enveloped nearly every part of the country.

January 2021 was the deadliest month so far, when an average of more than 3,100 people died every day of covid-19. On six of those days, the number topped 4,000. On Feb. 22, the U.S. death toll surpassed half a million people.

But the counts of new cases and hospitalizations had begun to fall in January, and in February, daily death numbers began to plummet as well.

Meanwhile, the pace of vaccinations ramped up to about a million and a half shots per day, setting up a race against time as new, more transmissible variants of the virus began to appear.
