More than 90,000 people could die from coronavirus in the next three weeks, according to a forecast published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That's according to a CNN story.

So far the United States has more than 23 million cases and more than 384,000 deaths, according to the New York Times Coronavirus in the U.S. map and statistics.

"Hundreds of thousands of infections are added to the country's tally every single day, with the US adding more than three million new reported infections since the start of the month," according to a CNN story.

Meanwhile, the vaccine rollout has begun since last month across the country with the Pfizer vaccine and now the Moderna vaccine. In Los Angeles County, it was reported earlier this month that on average, roughly 10 people in LA County are testing positive for COVID-19 every minute.

California has also allowed those 65 years of age and older to get the coronavirus vaccine. However, cities like Los Angeles and Pasadena, older people will still have to wait for vaccinations.

LA County officials are also considering tougher COVID-19 restrictions amid growing concern about the more contagious UK variant taking hold here.
