UK economy grew by slower-than expected 0.8% in May

Britain's economy grew by a slower-than expected 0.8% in May from April, official data showed on Friday.

A Reuters poll of economists had pointed to month-on-month growth of 1.5% in gross domestic product.

The figure for May from the Office for National Statistics was lower than April's 2.0% growth when restrictions eased for non-essential retailers, hairdressers and pubs and restaurants that could serve customers outside. But it was faster than typical pre-pandemic, month-on-month rises in GDP.

McConnell Hit With Some Home Truths After Saying He’s ‘Perplexed’ By COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) received a blunt reality check on Thursday after claiming he was puzzled by people who are opting not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

“I’m perplexed by the reluctance of some to get vaccinated, totally perplexed,” McConnell told reporters, per CNN’s Ana Cabrera, as vaccination rates slow down nationwide.

Critics suggested McConnell look at his own party, whose members have for months routinely downplayed the threat of the virus that’s now killed at least 4 million people worldwide.

More than 600,000 have died in the U.S.

Twitter users also pointed the finger of blame at conservative network Fox News, whose personalities have repeatedly sown doubt about the shots in recent months:

States Where the Most People Are Vaccinated

An estimated 157,908,171 Americans have been fully vaccinated, or 48.3% of the population.

So far, vaccination coordination efforts have been largely left to states to manage themselves — and some have proven more efficient at it than others. Depending on the state, the share of the population that has been fully vaccinated ranges from as low as 33.1% all the way up to 65.9%.

Regardless of the share of the population each state has managed to vaccinate, data reveals inefficiencies in vaccination campaigns everywhere in the country as millions of doses are currently sitting idle under the purview of state governments, yet to be administered. As of July 7, only about 84.1% of the 379,446,700 doses of the vaccine that have been distributed to the 50 states and Washington D.C. have been administered. In one state, only 70.1% of delivered doses have gone into the arms of residents.

As the virus mutates and new variants spread, vaccinating the population as rapidly as possible is critical. In total, there have been 10,205 known infections for every 100,000 people nationwide.
