Health officials in the United States on Monday reduced the isolation period for people with asymptomatic COVID-19, while President Joe Biden warned Americans not to panic over the growing number of cases that threaten public health.
Commenting on the rapid spread of Omicron coronavirus variant, Biden said some US hospitals could “expand”, but the country is well prepared to deal with the latest surgery.
Coronavirus continued to drill during busy Christmas cruises on Monday, with several airlines claiming Omicron-type spikes had reduced staffing.
The idea, which cut the isolation of asymptomatic cases from 10 to 5 days, has opened the way for people to return to work soon – reducing hopes of a mass decline in the major economic sectors.
The recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are not constructive but are widely followed by US businesses and policy makers. The commission also said that the five-day separation period “is followed by five days of wearing a mask when you are with others”.
The CDC said the new guidelines were “scientifically proven”, which showed that the spread of COVID-19 occurs early in the disease, usually two or two days before symptoms and within two or three days. after.
In a meeting with the White House and several state governors and senior health advisers, Biden stressed that the Omicron diversity could not have the same effect as the first case of COVID-19 in 2020 or Delta surgery this year.
“Omicron is the cause of concern, but it should not be scary,” he said.
Vaccination is widespread and vaccination of many people means that for many people the disease does not cause serious infections.
Omicron is now under great pressure
With Omicron now the biggest problem in the country, more than 200,000 cases every day were filmed in the last two days, which came in close to last January.
Biden acknowledged that while increasing the number of tests, “obviously is not enough”.
“Looking at how difficult it was for some people to be tested this weekend shows that we have a lot more work to do,” he said.
In addition to expanding free testing facilities, regulators will soon send 500 million home-testing kits to Americans, Biden said.
But “if we only knew, we would go hard, fast,” Biden said. “We need to do more.”
The United States has recorded the highest number of horrors in the world, with more than 816,000 people dying from COVID-52 and 52 million cases.
Global comparisons are undermined by the accuracy of government reporting systems, whereas per capita, the risk of US death is declining sharply on the list.
Obstructing the US response has been a political refusal of a coronavirus vaccine.
Many Republicans, in particular, are resisting pressure from Biden officials to order big business to explode. There has also been suspicion, especially in Republican groups, that they should receive a positive shot.
One of the vaccination centers is New York, where some of the country’s strongest operations began on Monday.
The bill, drafted by outgoing Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, requires that all employees in the organization be vaccinated.
Comprehensive vaccination evidence is also required for anyone 12 years of age or older who eats in indoor restaurants or at other public places, such as gymnasiums and theaters. Children between the ages of 5 and 11 will need to show evidence of a single dose of the vaccine.
On other possibilities, White House chief medical officer Anthony Fauci said the need for a vaccine at home would be important.
“I think it’s something that should be seriously considered,” he told MSNBC newspaper.
