New York City will require all of its 340,000 government employeesincluding police and teachers, We got vaccinated against covid Until back to school in mid-September, Or do weekly tests, The New York Times reports.
The measure was announced Monday (26th) by Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio.
California, according to the US newspaper, should do the same: All state employees and those who personally work in public and private health facilities should be vaccinated or tested every seven days.
For experts, the new rules may lead to the option of testing rather than vaccination. They argue that government actions should be more restrictive and claim that weekly tests are not a strong control measure against the delta variable.
In the US, according to the Our World in Data website, the pace of vaccination has slowed: the country’s moving average is 583,000 doses applied daily, far from the peak in April (3.4 million).
At the same time, the record of new infections is rising. This Sunday (25), the moving average was 51.9 thousand daily cases – also far from the 250 thousand cases at the beginning of January.
