Biden’s 6-pronged strategy to fight Covid-19

The US recorded an average of 150,000 new infections and 1,500 deaths per day in the latest outbreak, bringing the total number of deaths from Covid-19 to date to more than 677,000.

`We have been patient, but patience is limited. Your refusal is costing us all,` President Joe Biden expressed his displeasure with those who refuse to be vaccinated in the article.

The first step in Biden’s new strategy is mandatory vaccination for workers in both the public and private sectors.

This is an important step that the Biden administration hopes helps spur similar moves in the private sector.

19% of American workers said their employer will require vaccination before returning to work, according to a Gallup survey in August. That’s nearly double the 9% figure in July. The survey also

Even at companies that do not require it, only a small portion of employees have not been vaccinated, accounting for less than one-third, according to an ABC News/Washington Post survey.

Giving booster doses to increase protection for vaccinated people is the second step in Biden’s new strategy.

However, it is likely that this plan will only start with the Pfizer vaccine, although currently the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved this vaccine as a booster dose.

An advisory panel is scheduled to meet on September 17 on the issue, while the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will have to establish new guidelines for booster vaccinations.

Continuing to open schools is also one of the key steps of the new plan.

He also said he would require 300,000 educators in the federal Head Start program to be vaccinated, and called on governors to require vaccinations for teachers and school staff.

As the new school year begins, schools in the US must deal with the issue of quarantining teachers and students because of Covid-19, which could disrupt reopening.

The recent increase in nCoV infections and hospitalizations in children has made many experts worried, but this is still a group with a low risk of severe illness and death from Covid-19.

The Defense Production Act will be used to boost production of rapid testing kits, and the administration plans to send 25 million free kits to clinics in the US, in an effort to increase testing rates.

Regular testing at a reasonable cost helps detect infected people early, to promptly isolate and avoid the risk of infection to others, contributing to preventing the pandemic.

Economic recovery is a key part of Biden’s new Covid-19 response plan.

In July, the number of jobs in the US increased to 10.9 million, a new record high, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics on September 8.

Improving medical care for people with Covid-19 is the final step in the US President’s strategy.

Biden's 6-pronged strategy to fight Covid-19

A Covid-19 patient was taken to St.

Leana S. Wen, a visiting professor at George Washington University School of Public Health and former Baltimore health commissioner, said that Biden’s six-pronged strategy `goes in the right direction but is not enough` to fight Covid-19.

Nine months since the start of the vaccination campaign, the US has fully vaccinated 54% of the population.

`Biden must admit that we have reached a dead end in our efforts to call for vaccination. We have tried to raise awareness, encourage and urge people to perform their patriotic duty, but it has not been effective.

S. Wen appreciates the Biden administration requiring all federal employees to be vaccinated, but says the government can and should do more.

`Why didn’t Biden announce that vaccination would be mandatory for people traveling by plane or train? The federal government has authority over interstate travel and has used it to require mask wearing

The female professor said that the government also needs to clarify what restrictions people who have not been vaccinated will be subject to.

Additionally, Leana S. Wen suggested that the White House should urge businesses to implement a `no vaccination, no service` rule.

`I also hope government officials will change their thinking about vaccine green cards and support a national vaccination certification system,` S. Wen said.
