All adult Americans may have been vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of May, says President Joe Biden. An earlier forecast was July. According to Biden, progress is possible by correcting mistakes from the previous government, including by improving distribution across the country.
According to the president, all teachers have to get a first shot this month. But he warned that the pandemic could get worse because of new virus variants. “Now is not the time to slack. Its not over yet.” Biden called on people to (continue) wear a mouthcap, while in the meantime eases are being introduced in states like Texas.
Biden expressed the hope that the situation will return to normal by this time next year and called on Parliament to accept the economic rescue package of nearly 2 trillion dollars.
