According to the American newspaper, “The New York Times”, the chief infectious disease advisor at United State, Anthony Fauci, indicated that the vaccine may be required for everyone who wants to travel by air.
In a press interview with “MSNBC”, Fauci said that making the vaccination a requirement for air travel would be “another incentive.”
Fauci added that if there is a desire to do this, that is, to impose mandatory in exchange for air travel on domestic flights, “that should be seriously considered.”
Thinking about this option comes, as the US President said, from the pastOn more than one occasion, his approach to the spread of the “Omicron” mutant is based on two things; They are vaccination and further examinations.
And the United States chose not to return to imposing the closure, like European countries, which returned to imposing strict restrictions, and Washington announced the reopening of the country’s borders to arrivals from eight countries in the southern African region, where the new mutant was first detected.
Biden stressed, earlier, that the mutator is a cause for concern, but it should not turn into a source of “dread”, calling Americans to take the booster dose because it makes them less likely to become seriously ill from the infection.
On Monday, US airports witnessed the cancellation of at least 2,600 flights, including a thousand domestic flights in the country, due to the increase in injuries in some areas to a higher level than was recorded last winter.
And health data in the United States indicate that the “Omicron” mutant is responsible for more than 70 percent of new infections in the country.
The daily rate of coronavirus infections in the United States has exceeded 200,000 per day, a level that has not been recorded for nearly 12 months, according to the New York Times.
In the meantime, the requirement for the vaccine to travel by air is likely to provoke widespread controversy in the United States, while those who reject vaccination say that “compulsory” affects the human right and freedom in the body.
On the other hand, advocates of mandatory vaccination say that those who refuse vaccination constitute an obstacle to achieving collective immunity, especially since it is related to an infectious disease that spreads among people, leading to loss of life, and therefore, those who refuse vaccination cannot claim that the choice is purely individual, because the health of all people It is at stake.
