According to The Hill, the US president is planning to detail efforts to get more citizens to get vaccinated, since in recent days he blamed those haven´t yet gotten immunized for the increased toll of coronavirus-infected people.

Biden said Tuesday his administration envisaged making the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for workers.

According to local press, the White House will take a measure similar to what NY Mayor Bill de Blasio´s one, who will force New Yorkers to get vaccinated in mid-September or undergo weekly tests.

The United States could report in coming four to six weeks a rise of up to 200,000 cases per day due to the ultrafast spread of Delta variant, causing 83% of new infections in the country.

Dr. Tom Frieden, former director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), warned the country is approaching a hard time with the possibility the forecasts are met while ‘vaccination hits a wall’.

Only half the US people is partially vaccinated, according to CDC data, and most of those who are not vaccinated are thinking of doing so.

During the July 4 celebration, Biden assured that the United States was coming back to life and was ‘closer than ever’ to declaring its independence from the virus.

However, reality less than a month later indicated that with new Covid-19 cases, planning to reopen schools and work centers are already in doubt.

The Biden administration hoped to immunize at least 70% of adult population before Independence Day, but it failed.
