Biden on Thursday presents a new six-step plan to combat COVID-19

The strategy is aimed, in particular, at increasing the level of vaccination in the country.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday presents a new strategy to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues despite the widespread availability of vaccines.

According to a White House official, Biden will focus on six areas in his speech, including new plans to increase the level of vaccination, strengthen the protection of people who have already been vaccinated, and ensure the smooth operation of schools.

According to the source, the plan also covers such areas as expanding testing and wearing masks, protecting the economy from the recession caused by the pandemic, and improving the treatment system for coronavirus.

“We know that increasing the level of vaccination will stop the spread of the pandemic, will allow us to bring it under control, will return people to normal life,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. – There is still a lot of work ahead; we are still fighting the war against the virus.”

According to the CDC, at the moment, just over 53 percent of Americans are fully vaccinated, including almost two-thirds of the adult population. The disease has claimed the lives of more than 649,000 Americans.

While many Americans remain skeptical about vaccinations, the White House has already announced plans to provide booster doses to those who have already been fully vaccinated.

The World Health Organization and some experts believe that rich countries should not start re-vaccination until more people worldwide are vaccinated.

According to the official schedule of the White House, Biden’s speech is scheduled for 17:00.
