The administration of President Joe Biden said that the rate of vaccination against Covid-19 in the US has increased to more than 20%, after many units applied mandatory vaccination regulations. Currently, the number of new cases and deaths from Covid-19 in the US has also decreased.

The Straits Times reported that in a statement on October 13, Jeff Zients, the White House's Covid-19 coordinator, said that 77% of those eligible for vaccination had received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine. -19.

The rate of vaccination against Covid-19 in the US has increased rapidly, after many places enforced mandatory vaccination regulations such as private businesses, health care systems, social agencies, and government agencies. government and local.

President Biden's Covid-19 task force has struggled to contain the disease, because many Americans still refuse to be vaccinated despite the availability and surplus of vaccines.

In September, Mr. Biden announced policies that require health care workers and workers in federal government agencies to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. Soon after, a large number of workers were vaccinated, or tested weekly.

“Since the end of July, when President Biden first introduced vaccination requirements and urged organizations to follow suit, the number of unvaccinated Americans has dropped by about a third from 97 million to a year ago. 66 million,” said Mr. Zients.

Meanwhile, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that the average number of Covid-19 cases in the past 7 days has decreased by 12% compared to a week earlier. . At the same time, the number of deaths from Covid-19 has also decreased by 5%.

But US officials warn that a new strain capable of spreading faster than Delta will emerge and wreak havoc on the world. Therefore, now is not the time to be subjective in disease prevention.

“Despite the recent decline in the number of cases, most communities across the United States are still experiencing rapid transmission. We need to focus on bringing the Covid-19 epidemic across the country under control, especially in the autumn and winter period, through the regulation of wearing masks and vaccinating," said Dr. Walensky.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020, more than 700,000 Americans have died from corona virus infection.

The issue of controlling the Covid-19 epidemic is still a top priority for President Biden. Last week, the US leader once again called for more businesses to force workers to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Specifically, for private businesses with more than 100 workers, the US government requires all to be vaccinated against Covid-19 by the deadline of December 8, or must be tested weekly.

This requirement affects 100 million people, or two-thirds of the US workforce.

Those who do not comply with the rules will initially be warned and may subsequently be fired.

Although the White House has repeatedly emphasized that a Covid-19 vaccine is an important measure to progress towards eradicating the pandemic, some states with Republican governors still refuse to comply with the request. For example, the governors of Florida and Texas accused the mandatory requirement of Covid-19 vaccination as a violation of individual liberties.
