The U.S. has reported more than 12 million COVID-19 cases

The U.S. reported its 12 millionth case of COVID-19 on Saturday, days after the nation surpassed 250,000 deaths from the coronavirus. Meanwhile, plans call for 20 million Americans to be vaccinated in December and another 30 million each month with some semblance of normalcy returning to the country as soon as May, Operation Warp Speed chief science adviser Dr. Moncef Slaoui said Sunday. As cases continue to spread, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration granted Regeneron Pharmaceutical an Emergency Use Authorization for a drug cocktail to treat COVID-19, the agency announced Saturday. Trump has touted the experimental antibody treatment and took it while he was being treated for the disease. A similar monoclonal antibody treatment was also given emergency authorization earlier this month.
