President Joe Biden confirms that the country will have enough coronavirus vaccines for every adult by the end of May. He claimed this will be two months earlier than previously expected, he also said that the vaccination drive must be extended, too and people convinced to take it. And we warned the people of the united states to “stay vigilant” because “this fight is far from over”, with new variants a major concern. His warnings are in chaos with some of the states of the country that are relaxing restrictions to boost their economies.
Mr. President Promises Vaccination For All US Adults By The End Of May.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Biden’s new timeline does not mean all adults in the US will be vaccinated by the end of May, as the jabs will take longer to administer. Even though there has been a narrow drop in confirmed cases since the start of the year – the figure of 68,000 a day now is well down on the 8 January peak of 300,000 – that drop has leveled off over the past week, fueling fears of another wave. More than 76 million vaccination doses have been administered – covering 15.3% of the population and the US remains on track to meet Mr. Biden’s pledge of delivering 100 million Covid-19 vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office. Some 1.74 million doses are being administered every day.

The president said that drug manufacturer Merck who discontinued the work on their vaccine and started to work on helping Johnson & Johnson to produce its newly approved one-shot drug “We’re now on track to have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May,” he said, adding it was “the type of collaboration between companies we saw in World War Two”.
At the same time, the President acknowledged that supply was only one issue, with the nation needing to extend its vaccination drive and convince people to take the shots. He stated that “We need vaccinators, people who put the shots in people’s arms, millions of American’s arms.” He also added that great news, but stay vigilant,” and ended with a warning “It’s not over yet.”
On the other side, another key announcement was the pledge to give every teacher at least one shot by the end of march and speed up the reopening of schools.
But on a general reopening, President was more cautious, saying he was unsure when a return to normal would be possible, although he did then say before “this time next year”. Some are now relaxing rules, despite a warning from top federal health officials last week not to ease up. Mr. President repeated that saying: “We cannot let our guard down now or assure that victory is inevitable. We can’t assume that.” Individual states oversee public health policy in the US. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, most introduced restrictions on businesses and travel. About 35 required face coverings to be worn in public places, although enforcement of these mask mandates has been patchy.
