On Friday (Oct 1), Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California would be the first US state to require nationwide Covid-19 vaccinations for kids. An analysis showed the US had surpassed 700,000 coronavirus deaths.
“There’s no reason why we wouldn’t do the same for Covid-19,” the Democratic governor said at a news conference. “The state already requires students to be vaccinated against viruses that cause measles, mumps, and rubella – there’s no reason why we wouldn’t do the same for Covid-19.”
The school mandate may go into effect as early as January, according to Newsom, once the US Food and Drug Administration approves vaccinations for their age groups. California is the most populated state in the United States.
According to a study of public health data, the United States has reported an average of more than 2,000 deaths per day over the past week, accounting for around 60% of the peak in fatalities in January.
According to the tally, the United States leads the world in Covid-19 cases and deaths, accounting for 19% and 14% of all recorded infections and fatalities, respectively. The epidemic is expected to kill more than five million people worldwide.
While national hospitalization rates have been down in recent weeks, several states, particularly in the south, have seen significant increases, putting strain on healthcare systems. Officials argue that the state’s covid-19 solid public health rules have helped restrict the virus’s spread in recent weeks.
