“We all yearned for that moment when we can return to a certain normal,” said Rochelle Wallinski, head of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. People who are fully vaccinated can start doing the things they stopped doing because of the pandemic. This affects about 118 million people in the United States. The basis of the new guidelines are studies that show vaccinations are very effective even against viral variants. Wallinski continued to urge caution on NBC on Friday – but the end of the pandemic in the US is slowly looming.
Those who have been fully vaccinated can go to the movies, the gym, or the hairdresser without a mask. The authority said that church services, singing in the choir and eating in the restaurant were once again possible without a mask. The advertisement should also facilitate returning to the offices. However, wearing a mask is still required in crowded situations such as airplanes, trains, buses, hospitals or airports. Mask requirements also apply if requested by local authorities, employers or companies.
Biden said the number of cases has decreased in 49 of the 50 US states. The number of Covid-19 deaths is at its lowest level since April of last year. On Thursday, the mark of 250 million vaccine doses had been reached since he took office on January 20. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 118 million of the approximately 330 million people in the United States now have the necessary doses of vaccine for full protection. For adults, the rate is good 45 percent. Recently, however, the rate of daily vaccinations has slowed down.
According to experts, the government wants to use the heavy lifting of mask requirements as an incentive for all Americans to vaccinate. Biden explained that the rule was now simple: “vaccinated or masked.” And he urged all citizens to be vaccinated. “We’re not done yet. We are still losing a lot of Americans because we still have too many unvaccinated people.” Biden set a goal that by Independence Day on July 4, 70 percent of all adults will be fully vaccinated. Biden added that in order to achieve long-term security, the pandemic must be tackled not only in the United States but around the world.
