According to Johns Hopkins University, there are now more than two million confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the US.
According to officials between 800 to one thousand people are dying daily in the US from the virus.
Health officials fear some areas will see a spike in new infections over the next few months.
The Harvard Global Health Institute predicts 100-thousand more deaths by September.
Officials say the first wave isn’t gone as we head into a second one.
They say hospital leaders should be preparing for the next surge now by stocking up on masks and PPE (personal protective equipment).
Johnson and Johnson is expected to start double-blind, randomized humane vaccine trials next month.
A double-blind study is when neither the participants or the experimenters know who is receiving the treatment.
But in the meantime, health officials remind Americans to be cautious by wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
