The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus pandemic officially passed 200,000 on Tuesday. The grim milestone comes on the first day of fall and brings with it quite a few concerns. Caseloads are once again growing in several states including Wisconsin, Montana and North Dakota. There are also worries about the arrival of flu season and the likelihood that cooler temperatures will result in larger numbers of people congregating indoors.
In additional news, the availability of a COVID-19 vaccine for children may not arrive until fall 2021. Experts say this is the case because no trials have yet begun in the United States to determine whether the vaccines developed to date are safe and effective for children.
