The governors firmly intend to return to normal
When a leading health expert in the United States hinted this week that states dealing with the surge in coronavirus cases should implement business closures, her words were shocking.
Even democratic governors and legislators have expressed opposition to strict lockdown orders and business closures to curb the COVID-19 outbreak, and they are tired of this strategy.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the governor has said that they will stick to science when making decisions, but this is a noteworthy change, but at the same time we must recognize the reality: a new round of shutdown orders may be ignored by the public. The pandemic dried it up.
In recent weeks, as vaccination rates have risen, the weather has rebounded, and political dynamics have changed dramatically. Citizens and business owners have become more outspoken about reopening schools and relaxing restrictions on social gatherings.
Pennsylvania State Representative Mike Zabel said: “I think if we try to restore the kind of restrictions that were imposed in March and April last year, it will be a real compliance issue.” He has ordered that it was Governor Tom. Wolf (Tom Wolf). “I don’t think anyone in Pennsylvania wants something like that.”
The number of COVID-19 cases in Pennsylvania is on the rise, and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that the state had one of the highest per capita infection rates in the world last week. However, the Wolfe government stated: “There is currently no plan to re-enforce any closure orders.” Instead, the Democratic governor pointed out that as the state gradually resumes operations, it is still necessary to use masks, focus and stay away from society.
Other governors have also insisted on returning to normal conditions while resuming vaccine eligibility, which may complicate President Joe Biden’s efforts to contain the pandemic.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s request for the Biden government to allocate more vaccines to the state failed because the state is struggling to deal with the country’s highest COVID-19 infection rate. But Dr. Rochelle Varensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said on Monday that these vaccines will not have a direct impact on the rebound, because they can take up to six weeks to take effect.
Varensky said: “The answer to this is to close, go back to the basics, go back to last spring, last summer and closed places, flatten the curve, reduce contact with others, and test.”
