The government claims more than 50,000 people can log on to its troubled health care website and more than 800,000 people will be able to shop for insurance coverage each day.       

Officials from the Department of Health and Human Services on Sunday released a progress report on fixes to the website, which saw its first weeks plagued by technical errors.         

Officials say the website is improved but acknowledge it's far from perfect.           

There is no way to independently verify the administration's figures.             

Even with the repairs in place, the site still won't be able to do everything the administration wants, and companion sites for small businesses and Spanish speakers have been delayed. Questions remain about the stability of the site and the quality of the data it delivers to insurers.
