President Joe Biden shared the good news that COVID-19 infected cases are declined in all 50 states on Monday and it’s a big achievement in the last year. Though, the national health crisis is continued. He addressed the 40% of Americans who still aren’t vaccinated yet.
Biden appreciated the efforts to reduce the infection rate but he “can’t promise that we’ll continue this way,” he opened up. “We know there will be advances and setbacks, and we know that there are many flare-ups that can occur, but if the unvaccinated get vaccinated, they would protect themselves and other unvaccinated people around them.”
If the rest of the Americans don’t get vaccinated, “states with low vaccination rates may see those rates go up, may see this progress reversed,” he pointed out. “Ultimately those who are not vaccinated will end up paying the price.”
He continued, “We still have tens of millions left to vaccinate, but we are making significant progress”. “When tomorrow’s vaccination numbers come out, they’ll show that 60% of Americans have received at least one shot. The light at the end of that tunnel is growing brighter.”
The good sign is not only infection ratio has reduced, but deaths are down by 81%. Eventually, the economy is growing fast, as per Biden. “Progress is undeniable, but we’re not done yet. And some of the hardest work is ahead. We’re still losing too many Americans, and we still have too many unvaccinated people in America,” he continued.
“Last week the CDC announced that if you’re fully vaccinated, you no longer have to wear a mask,” he said. “The science now shows that your vaccination protects you as well as being masked or better than being masked.
So, you can protect yourself from serious illness from COVID by getting vaccinated or wear a mask until you’re fully vaccinated. Either way, you’re protected.” He also asked Americans to “work together” to meet the target goal of getting 70 percent of Americans vaccinated with at least one shot by July 4.”
