The authorities have provided a ray of hope as they told that most of the adolescents aged between 12 to 17 years have got their first dose of vaccination. It was observed that the Golf Coast hospitals started getting filled with unvaccinated patients amid emerging coronavirus attacks.
It became difficult for the healthcare system to handle the situation as the requirement of enough staff was impossible to be fulfilled immediately.
Increased Vaccination-A Hope For US Educational Institutions
Well, the Biden administration came forward suggesting that the rates of vaccination are increasing among teens day by day. Their inoculation rate is faster than any other age group in the U. S. Looking at this data, Jeff Zients, the White House coronavirus coordinator, informed the reporters that it is great progress considering the reopening of schools and children attending them.
Apart from this, the studies conducted in California show that schools and educational institutions can be opened safely if they follow social distancing norms and all the protocols associated with them.
A study conducted in Los Angeles County showed that the risk of spread of infection was 3.5 times lower in children and teenagers when the schools followed all the COVID-19 guidelines. The students were made to wear masks every time, proper testing was done, and physical distancing was maintained.
A study carried out at Marin County, north of San Francisco, revealed that an unvaccinated professor who gave lectures to the class without wearing a mask was responsible for spreading the infection to 26 other individuals before the Delta variant went wild in the nation. This was highly disappointing as this is not expected from a well-educated teacher.
It has been observed that the cases are high and the rates are increasing at places where the people are not following the guidelines as released by the authorities in the current scenario. Several active corona cases have been detected in the public schools of Arkansas as the students and teachers continue to take the situation lightly.
The data reveals that the number goes beyond 3000. It is difficult for teenagers to stay and study in such conditions as it will only lead to a large-scale spread of infection.
Further, the lack of equipment and staff at the hospitals is also a big problem that needs to be addressed. Along with that, the healthcare workers need to be vaccinated first so that they do not become vulnerable to getting infected as well as spreading the infection. Officials were trying to get the word out that people with less severe medical problems should go to special-needs storm shelters or contact emergency management.
About 1,100 people are dying daily of COVID-19 in the United States, the most since mid-March. Several people were hospitalized and many of them lost their lives fighting a battle with the deadly coronavirus.
It has become a difficult task to handle the spread of viruses and deal with their new variants. There is a state of chaos and distress everywhere right now. Amidst such conditions, there needs to be proper vaccination done and calm down people as much as possible.
