The United States does not plan to re-close the economy and suspend classes in schools due to the spread of the COVID-19 “delta” strain, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
“It’s not March 2020 or even January 2021. We are not going to go back to closing our economy or schools. Our country is much stronger than it was when we took office,” she said at a briefing for journalists.
Psaki added that the spread of the delta strain did not affect the American economy. Still, the administration does not exclude the possibility of disruptions in the “supply chains,” including due to the situation in other countries.
