Due to the new wave of infection, Miami has insisted on vaccinating those who have not yet done so and reusing masks in public buildings.
Following the new recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control Centers), Florida, Miami-Dade will begin to need a more populous county. Masks are mandatory for all public servants and visitors, whether vaccinated or not.
The district mayor made the announcement at a press conference. Daniella Levine Cava, Asked its residents Wear masks indoors or in crowded places. As governor of Florida, this is not a demand and dump as the county does not legally require the use of masks Ron Desantis It explicitly prohibited municipalities from enforcing these types of regulations.
“We have come so far. We cannot go backwards, especially now that our economy is starting to improve,” Levin Kawa said.
The district’s infection rate crossed 10 percent this week for the first time in more than two weeks. In the last seven days, 11,104 new COVID 19 cases In the county. In the past waves, Miami-Tate has been the most affected area in Florida. In general, there is a significant increase in the number of new infections.
“Florida is one of the most affected states. From there, 20 percent of the country’s new cases are reported, ”said the White House press secretary Jen Saki.
According to experts, this new wave is mostly due to the fact that those who are not vaccinated are getting more. President of the Jackson Memorial Public Health Organization, Carlos Mikoya, This new wave of epidemics is called the “epidemic of the unvaccinated.”
In the state of Florida, although the vaccine is available to everyone over the age of 12 without restriction, Less than half of the population is fully vaccinated. In Miami-Tad, if residents are considered eligible for the vaccine, 75 percent of them have been vaccinated. But the problem is, apparently those who do not plan to do so.
“Vaccination is the solution”, Levin Kawa energetically repeats, urging those who have not yet been vaccinated to do so.
To make the process easier, the county reopened this week Five vaccination centersFeedback and testing in various environments that can be attended without any change from 7am to 7pm.
In order to avoid crowding in limited spaces, county hospitals should also begin to reduce the number of people in their vicinity. On the other hand, in public transport (buses, trains, planes and boats), the use of masks has always been mandatory by federal regulation.
The Miami-Date Supervisor of Public Schools has announced that they will assess the situation to see if the rules governing the use of masks within schools are changing. Kids in Miami will return to school at the end of August after the summer holidays.
