US acquires 200 million new doses as COVID-19 vaccine drive begins
in pharmacies

US President Joe Biden announced plans to vaccinate most Americans by the end of July with the help of 200 million newly
acquired doses, as the country's inoculation campaign kicked off a new phase in drugstores and supermarket pharmacies,
some of which will offer shots as of Friday (Feb 12).

Even as the Biden administration inked deals to acquire "100 million more Moderna and 100 million more Pfizer vaccines"
and COVID-19 cases fall in Europe, the World Health Organization warned against rash reopenings, in a sobering reminder
of the long global battle ahead in taming the pandemic.

"The decline in cases conceals increasing numbers of outbreaks and community spread involving variants of concern,"
said WHO Europe director Hans Kluge.

"At this point, the overwhelming majority of European countries remain vulnerable," he added, pointing out
the "thin line between the hope of a vaccine and a false sense of security."

More than a million cases are still registered every week across the 53 member states in the UN agency's European region,
which includes several Central Asian countries.

With the latest vaccine purchases, the United States - the world's hardest-hit country with more than 470,000 deaths -
is on track "to have enough supply for 300 million Americans by the end of July", Biden said, meaning enough inoculations
for all eligible people.

He made the announcement Thursday after touring the National Institutes of Health near Washington, with a million
previously acquired vaccine doses already headed to around 6,500 drugstores and supermarket pharmacies.
