More Americans have been vaccinated against COVID-19 than have been officially diagnosed with the illness, according to data from Bloomberg.

Bloomberg's Vaccine Tracker showed that as of Monday afternoon, 26.5 million people had received at least a first dose of the vaccine. The nation has seen 26.3 million diagnoses of COVID-19 in total.

Currently, about 1.34 million people are receiving the vaccine in the United States on a daily basis, more than any other nation, Bloomberg reports. Fewer than 2% of the U.S. population has received both doses of the vaccine, while fewer than 8% has received a single dose.
