President Joe Biden is planning to host an 'independence from COVID' party on July 4 at the White House - even though the US is set to fall short of his goal to have 70 percent of adults vaccinated.

Even as the US is set to cross the grim milestone of 600,000 deaths from the virus on Tuesday, the White House is expressing growing certainty that July Fourth will serve as a breakthrough moment in the nation's recovery.

As COVID-19 case rates and deaths drop to levels not seen since the first days of the outbreak, travel picks up and schools and businesses reopen, Biden is proclaiming 'a summer of freedom' to celebrate Americans resuming their pre-pandemic lives.
