Update from Argentina:

President Fernández announced a plan for a gradual lifting of all restrictions implemented since the beginning of the pandemic as the number of cases have been in constant declining for the last ten weeks and the vaccination plan is advancing in all the country. However, these decisions are conditioned to the containing of the circulation in the community of the Delta variant, something that so far has been done.

The US FDA and CDC have authorized a “booster” vaccination for people with compromised immune systems. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others suggest that by winter (January 2022) that may be more generally recommended by they’ll want to get approval for a vaccination for children 12 and under by that time as well.

Reports suggest that new cases and hospitalizations are “taking hold” in the Southern US as hospital and .iCU capacity are reaching their limits from Texas to Florida and even though the number of vaccinations has risen to 1million/day by Friday including among those between ages 12 and 30.

This via Political Wire this afternoon.

“President Biden is announcing sweeping new vaccine mandates Thursday that will impact tens of millions of Americans, pushing all businesses with more than 100 employees to require their workforces to be inoculated or face weekly testing,” the Washington Post reports.

Associated Press: “The expansive rules mandate that all employers with more than 100 workers require them to be vaccinated or test for the virus weekly, affecting about 80 million Americans. And the roughly 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid also will have to be fully vaccinated.”

“Biden is also signing an executive order to require vaccination for employees of the executive branch and contractors who do business with the federal government — with no option to test out. That covers several million more workers.”

CNN reports companies could face thousands of dollars in fines per employee if they don’t comply.“
