Doctor Anthony Fossie, Chief Medical Adviser to President Joe Biden, said Sunday The United States is not expected to return to the lockoutDespite the increased risk of COVID-19 infections caused by delta variation.
“I don’t think we’re going to see prisons“Fuci, who is also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told ABC’s” This Week “.
“I think we have a sufficient percentage of people in the country – not enough to mitigate the eruption – but I think we have enough to not get back to where we were last winter.”.
Although Fuchs did not believe that the United States would have to go back to locking up, as it did last year. Warned in ABC “Things are getting worse” as the delta variation continues to expand. “We have 100 million people in this country who can and do not be vaccinated,” he said.
Fuci argued Those who are not vaccinated infect others Because they “allow the outbreak to spread and spread”, and he opposed critics who say vaccination is a personal decision. Fuci said those who actually decide not to get vaccinated They particularly affect the rights of Americans who are susceptible to infection because they have invaded their personal rights “by making them vulnerable.”.
The average number of new cases reported every day in the last 10 days has almost doubled, and the number of hospitalized patients in many states is increasing. Reuters.
The delta variance in Covid-19 cases nationwide is at least 83%, the CDC estimated last week.
On Saturday, Florida set a record for daily lawsuits, but Governor Ron Desantis said: “There will be no closures, no school closures. There will be no restrictions or orders in the state of Florida. , He accused of wanting to impose “dystopia” and not taking any action to counter the recurrence of the epidemic in the state.
According to the order he issued, only parents can decide whether their children go to school with a mask, but there will be no official order.
Masks to protect those who have not been vaccinated
Francis Collins, director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, said Sunday that federal guidelines that encourage vaccinated people to wear the mask at home in the most contagious communities of Covit-19 are aimed at protecting non-vaccinated and immunocompromised people.
The expert explained in the project “The status of the union” CNN Studies show that the use of masks may be helpful when viral infections are on the rise in some parts of the United States Those who are vaccinated can spread the virus to others.
But he insisted on it on Sunday Masks are not a substitute for the vaccine, which works “very well” and “25 times” reduces the risk of a person being hospitalized with a serious illness, Including delta variation.
Collins warns that the virus is “celebrating a big party in the center of the country” this time around, but the positive side is that more people are being vaccinated now. He says companies may have to step up to demand the vaccine, and passengers could argue that airlines consider it. Recently, Disney and Walmart told their employees to get vaccinated.
