***U.S. COVID-19 UPDATE***
(FCPAC) – After three years…
On May 11, Joe Biden will end any COVID-19 emergencies.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) stated in a Statement of Administration Policy that an abrupt end to the emergency declarations “would generate wide-ranging instability and uncertainty throughout the health care system—for states, for hospitals and doctors’ offices, and, most significantly, for tens of millions of Americans.”
Terminating Covid emergency declarations also means that people will be responsible for covering their costs for Covid examinations, shots, and treatments.
(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – Many nations have returned to the pre-pandemic era by eliminating vaccination and testing regulations three years after the COVID-19 pandemic, while others have loosened restrictions.
For instance, COVID-19 has the same classification as seasonal flu in Japan.
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida declared earlier this month that he had given his cabinet the go-ahead to categorize COVID-19 as being on par with seasonal flu, rubella, and chickenpox in the spring.
“We will gradually transition the various policies and measures in place to continue the efforts of “living with Corona” and return normalcy to Japan,” Kishida added.
According to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, the pandemic is still ongoing.
Tedros remarked at the 152nd meeting of the WHO Executive Board,
“As you are aware, the emergency committee met on Friday to discuss if that is still the case. According to the Committee, COVID-19 continues to be a worldwide health emergency. And I concur.”
Tedros categorized the present COVID-19 epidemic as a “public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC)” and agreed with the Committee’s assessment.
The COVID-19 pandemic is most likely in a transition phase, according to the Committee and Tedros.
According to a statement,
“WHO is urging countries: to remain vigilant and continue reporting surveillance and genomic sequencing data; to recommend appropriately targeted risk-based public health and social measures (PHSM) where necessary; to vaccinate populations most at risk to minimize severe disease and deaths; and to conduct regular risk communication, answering population concerns and engaging communities to improve the understanding and implementation of countermeasures.”
“The Committee was informed that, globally, 13.1 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered, with 89% of health workers and 81% of older adults (over 60 years) having completed the primary series.
Significant progress has also been made in: developing effective medical countermeasures; building global capacity for genomic sequencing and genomic epidemiology; and in understanding how to manage the infodemic in the new informational eco-system including social media platforms.”
Why is the WHO still saying the pandemic isn’t over, and should countries continue to follow Covid-19 information from them?
Until more data is released, people are encouraged to continue to do their own research on the effects of taking the vaccine.
