US guidance on socializing eased with deaths fall, but worries aired over variant

The US on Monday relaxed socializing guidelines for those fully vaccinated against COVID-19, even though health officials expressed concern about a possible spike in a more contagious variant of the coronavirus.

The worries over the virus strain that was first discovered in the UK are strongest for Florida, now the country's epicenter of the B.1.1.7. variant.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, announced the new guidelines for vaccinated people, saying they can gather with others of that status indoors without masks or physical distancing.

"With more and more people vaccinated each day, we are starting to turn a corner," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said at a news briefing on Monday. She called the guidance a "first step" toward restoring normalcy in how people come together.

She said more activities would be approved for vaccinated individuals once caseloads and deaths decline, more people are vaccinated, and as more science emerges on the ability of those who have been vaccinated to get and spread the virus.

The guidelines that endorse more freedoms for vaccinated people coincide with an encouraging statistic in the country's battle against coronavirus. On Monday, fewer than 1,000 deaths were recorded for the first time in nearly three and a half months, according to a tally kept by the Johns Hopkins University.

For the 24-hour period, 749 people died from the coronavirus, far below the peak of 4,473 deaths recorded on Jan 12.

Nationwide, the country had reported more than 29,045,000 cases as of early Tuesday, with 525,816 deaths confirmed, the tally showed.

In Florida, there are 642 cases of B.1.1.7., more than any other state, according to the CDC. The per-capita rate of patients currently in Florida hospitals is now about 25 percent above the national average, according to Bloomberg.

The CDC is continuing to recommend that fully vaccinated people still wear masks, avoid large gatherings and keep their distance from others when in public.

As of Sunday, 58.9 million people had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, including 30.7 million people who have been fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

Resistance to classes

New York City will reopen public high schools on March 22, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday. Many Asian-American families, however, reportedly are choosing to have their children continue to be taught remotely.

"We have all the pieces we need to bring high school back and bring it back strong, and, of course, bring it back safely," de Blasio told a news conference. "We are bringing our schools back fully in September, period."

Some Asian families are afraid that their children will face racist harassment at school, some are concerned about the health risks of the coronavirus, others are pleased with online learning and see no reason to send them back to school, The Washington Post reported.

Globally, nearly 117 million people have been reported infected with the virus, and almost 2.26 million have died.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, more than 700,000 lives have been lost to COVID-19, according to an Agence France-Presse tally on Monday evening.

The region, which encompasses 34 countries and territories in South and Central America and the Caribbean plus Mexico, has recorded 700,022 deaths-the second-highest number of virus fatalities after Europe.

The Italian Health Ministry on Monday said 318 people had died in the latest 24-hour period, bringing the total to 100,103, the second highest in Europe after Britain.

Italy that day raised the age limit for use of a coronavirus vaccine from AstraZeneca, following similar moves from France and Germany.

When it was first released, research showed that the AstraZeneca vaccine-unlike the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the other two shots approved for use in Italy and other European Union states-was recommended only for those under the age of 65.

France and Germany gave the greenlight last week for the AstraZeneca vaccine on those aged 65 or older.

随着死亡人数的下降,美国对社交的指导有所放松,但对变体的担忧也有所加剧。美国周一放松了对那些完全接种新冠肺炎疫苗的人的社交指导,尽管卫生官员对更具传染性的冠状病毒变体可能激增表示担忧。对首次在英国发现的病毒株的担忧在佛罗里达州最为强烈,佛罗里达州现在是该国的B.1.1.7变异中心。疾病控制和预防中心(CDC)宣布了针对接种疫苗者的新指南,称他们可以在室内与其他处于这种状态的人聚集在一起,无需戴口罩或保持身体距离。“随着每天越来越多的人接种疫苗,我们开始好转,”疾控中心主任罗谢尔·瓦伦斯基在周一的新闻发布会上说。她称该指南是恢复人们如何走到一起的常态的“第一步”。她说,一旦病例数和死亡人数下降,更多的人接种疫苗,随着更多关于接种疫苗者获得和传播病毒能力的科学出现,接种疫苗者将被批准开展更多的活动。该指南支持给接种疫苗的人更多的自由,这与该国抗击冠状病毒的令人鼓舞的统计数据相吻合。根据约翰霍普金斯大学的统计,周一,近三个半月来首次记录到不到1000人死亡。在24小时内,749人死于冠状病毒,远低于1月12日记录的4473人死亡的峰值。统计显示,截至周二早些时候,全国已报告超过2904.5万例病例,已确认525816例死亡。根据疾控中心的数据,佛罗里达州有642例B.1.1.7,比任何其他州都多。据彭博社(Bloomberg)报道,目前佛罗里达州医院的人均病人率比全国平均水平高出约25%。疾控中心继续建议完全接种疫苗的人仍然戴着口罩,避免大型集会,在公共场合与他人保持距离。根据疾病预防控制中心的数据,截至周日,5890万人至少接种了一剂新冠肺炎疫苗,其中3070万人已经完全接种疫苗。纽约市长比尔·白思豪周一表示,纽约市将于3月22日重新开放公立高中。然而,据报道,许多亚裔美国家庭选择让他们的孩子继续接受远程教育。“我们有所有的东西,我们需要把高中带回来,让它变得强大,当然,把它安全地带回来,”白思豪在新闻发布会上说。"我们将在9月份全面恢复我们的学校."据《华盛顿邮报》报道,一些亚洲家庭担心他们的孩子在学校面临种族主义骚扰,一些家庭担心冠状病毒的健康风险,另一些家庭对在线学习感到满意,认为没有理由送他们回学校。据报道,全球已有近1.17亿人感染该病毒,近226万人死亡。据法新社周一晚间报道,在拉丁美洲和加勒比海地区,超过70万人丧生于新冠肺炎。该地区包括南美洲、中美洲、加勒比海地区以及墨西哥的34个国家和地区,已有700,022人死亡,是仅次于欧洲的第二高病毒死亡人数。意大利卫生部周一表示,在最近的24小时内,已有318人死亡,使死亡总数达到100,103人,在欧洲排名第二,仅次于英国。意大利当天提高了阿斯利康冠状病毒疫苗的使用年龄限制,此前法国和德国也采取了类似措施。研究表明,阿斯利康疫苗在首次发布时,不同于辉瑞-生物泰克和莫德纳疫苗,其他两种疫苗被批准在意大利和其他欧盟国家使用,只建议65岁以下的人使用。法国和德国上周批准阿斯利康疫苗用于65岁以上的老年人。
