US President Cautions Against New Coronavirus Strain, Calls For Speeding Of Vaccinations Globally
Washington, Nov 27 (TNA) US president Joe Biden has cautioned the people of the threats from the new Coronavirus strain, which he said was a “reminder that this pandemic will not end until we have global vaccinations”.
The U.S. has already donated more vaccines to other countries than every other country combined. It is time for other countries to match our speed and generosity, he added.
Biden further said that “as we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises. For now the best way to strengthen your protection if you’re already vaccinated is to get a booster shot, immediately. For those not yet fully vaccinated: get vaccinated today”.
After the WHO identified a new COVID variant which is spreading through Southern Africa, as a precautionary measure until we have more information, the US president has clamped air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries.
