Biden steps up US fight against coronavirus

US President Joe Biden speaks about the administration’s response to COVID-19 in the South Court Auditorium of the White House in Washington DC on January 13, 2022.

Given the increase in coronavirus infections, the White House has arranged millions of free tests that will be delivered after ordering online throughout the United States.

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, addressed the nation on Thursday, trying to encourage Americans, exhausted by the pandemic that next March will mark two years of scourge in the world.

“I know we are all frustrated as we start the new year. It’s been a long road, but we’re going to get through this,” Trump said in a brief speech at the White House.

The Administration will begin in a few days to send free face masks to the entire country before the advance of the omicron variant , to which is added the provision of some 500 million COVID-19 tests, apart from a similar figure already delivered.

Any American will be able to apply for the free test kits starting next week, through an online form, Biden reported.

In total, more than 208 million people in the US are fully vaccinated, and 77 million of them have also received booster shots, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

EU warns against excessive use of reinforcements

The Union’s drug regulatory mechanism has warned that too many doses of COVID-19 vaccines could eventually weaken the body’s immune system, rendering additional injections ineffective.

The dynamic would be “once or twice, but it’s not something we think needs to be repeated constantly,” Marco Cavaleri, the European Medicines Agency’s head of vaccine strategy, said in a statement earlier this week.

Britain’s Health Security Agency warned last week that there was “no immediate need” for people to get a fourth injection.
