On verge of 500,000 fatalities from virus, worst-hit nation sees encouraging signs

Despite the renewed attention on the catastrophic death toll, there are signs of hope emerging in the US, where millions have now been vaccinated and winter's massive spike in infections has dropped.

But the deaths keep coming, and US President Joe Biden last month warned that "well over" 600,000 people in the US could die from the coronavirus.
