Today marks the one year anniversary of the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19 a pandemic. 

The virus is now responsible for over 2.6 million deaths globally and over 529,000 in the U.S. 

Vaccination drives have offered new hope of a post-pandemic world. In the states about 10% are fully vaccinated but many people are hesitant to get a shot. 

Tonight Pres. Biden will discuss what comes next in battling the pandemic after Congress passed his massive COVID relief package. 

This is his first prime-time address. You can watch it tonight at 8 p.m. ET on Newsy.
