April 10 marked the 100th day of 2021.

The US entered a new phase of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic with the rollout of vaccines. Confirmed cases began to plateau and decrease, though coronavirus variants that continue to spread within certain states and communities have prompted health officials to advise Americans to continue to take appropriate precautions.

Outside of the pandemic, a number of unprecedented events happened in a little over three months into the new year, including the January 6 Capitol riot, the beginning of the trial of ex-Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin in the killing of George Floyd, and Kim Kardashian filing for divorce from Kanye West after seven years of marriage.

Here are 38 major news events that happened in the first 100 days of 2021:

January 6: Pro-Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol on the day Congress was voting to approve President Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election.
