US registers 169,935 virus cases, 3,292 deaths

The United States registered 169,935 new COVID-19 cases and 3,292 coronavirus-related deaths over the past day, according to Johns Hopkins' data updated on Sunday, pushing the total tally to nearly 25 million cases and 417,441 fatalities.

Following the outbreak spikes in early-January which came after the holiday season, the number of newly discovered positive cases has started to go down at a slow, but steady pace.

Meanwhile, vaccine developers Pfizer and BioNTech are planning to ship fewer vials of their COVID-19 jab to the US to account for the extra doses found in the containers, according to a recent report.
