US President Joe Biden made a reservation, saying that Americans who have been vaccinated against coronavirus are given one hundred thousand dollars in some regions. A transcript of the speech is available on the White House website.
“There are places where the rewards for vaccination reach a hundred thousand… a hundred thousand? That would be too good. I would then have been vaccinated myself three times,” the country’s leader joked after the reservation.
Biden noted that even a hundred dollars helped to increase the pace of vaccination in the United States.
The number of cases of coronavirus in the country has been continuously growing for about a month. The president himself called the new wave of COVID-19 “a tragedy that could have been prevented” with the help of vaccination.
