US President Joe Biden announced new restrictions on the coronavirus.
According to the US president, who spoke at the White House, all federal employees who have not been vaccinated will need to wear a mask, distance themselves, and take tests for coronavirus.
“Experts believe that COVID cases will continue to grow,” Biden said. According to him, 90 million Americans have not been vaccinated, although they have the right to do so.
Biden also said that an additional dose of the vaccine is not needed yet.
“My medical advisers say no: none of the Americans need a booster right now,” Biden said.
He said that the issue of vaccination is not a political one since the use of vaccines was approved under the Republican administration and began to be widely used mainly under the Democrats.
“America is blessed that we have a vaccine for all Americans… It’s a pity that we are wasting this advantage,” Biden said.
