The president of the United States, Joe Biden, announced this Thursday new measures to face a new wave of coronavirus infections in the face of winter, among which is not the closure of establishments and schools, but greater control of arrivals from abroad and a promotion of vaccination.

“The plan that I am announcing I think should unite us. I know that COVID-19 has divided this country a lot, it has become a political issue, which is sad. It shouldn’t be, but it has been. Now that we get into winter and we face the challenges of this new variant, this is a time when we have to leave this division behind, “demanded President Biden.

The head of the White House has once again placed emphasis on expanding the immunization plan and bringing it closer to those who resist the puncture, emphasizing that it is the only way to deal with the virus and especially the new variant, omicron, of which have already been confirmed two cases.

Within this plan “there are no confinements, no closures, but more vaccinations, booster doses and more tests”, use of masks in public transport, as well as new controls on those who come to the United States from other countries, who must present a test with a negative result made 24 hours after taking the flight, regardless of your vaccination status or nationality.

Biden has warned that infections are likely to increase as temperatures drop and there are more gatherings due to the Christmas parties. “Experts say that cases will continue to increase in the coming weeks, so we have to be prepared,” he said.

His Administration, Biden said, will deploy mobile clinics to bring vaccines to neighborhoods and provide support with staff and infrastructure to community health centers so that it can facilitate these services, CNN says.

In turn, in an attempt to increase the number of coronavirus tests, he has announced that the price of the tests will be reimbursed to those clients who have private insurance, while those who are not insured will be reimbursed accordingly. free.
