Washington In the US, anti-pandemic laws are set individually by the state. Federal agency, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), can only refer to guidelines and simple recommendations for U.S. citizens.
On March 8, the CDC published instructions on its website for those who have been fully vaccinated, that is, those who have received two doses of Pfizer or Modern Serum or one. Johnson & Johnson. Not everything is free. According to scientists from Atlanta, 31.4 million immunizations (9.5% of the population) can remove their masks in only one case: Small gatherings at home with other people, whether vaccinated or not. For everything else, nothing changes. CDC invites you to always protect your nose and mouth; Hand washing; Maintain social distance; Avoid closed rooms or collective gatherings of any kind; Abandon travel in the national area or abroad. Therefore, there are still very strict limitations. Why? Two reasons: We still do not know if the vaccinated person can still transmit the virus to others; We are studying whether vaccines are effective against Kovid variants. But in America, the final word is on politics.
Today, Wednesday, May 10, the ordinance of Governor Greg Abbott of the Republic of Texas comes into force: vObligation of a mask for vaccination or not at all. Another 12 states did the same, while others think against it, contrary to the opinion of doctors. (Giuseppe Sarsina)
