Delta surge drowns out good news in US on the economy and unemployment


There’s a lot of good news to bring Americans into the weekend; the US hit the key milestone of vaccinating 50% of the total population, and nearly 60% of the eligible population — those 12 and older — are fully vaccinated.

The economy added a better-than-expected 943,000 jobs in July and the unemployment rate dipped to 5.4%, more signs the US is determined and desperate to recover from the pandemic.
