Biden administration to undo Medicaid work requirements
"They Biden administration is moving to roll back Medicaid work requirements in this latest effort to undo a controversial trump era policy.

CDC issues first national strategy to help schools reopen safely
"Nation's top public health agency said today that in person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies and mandated vaccinations of teachers should not be required before schools reopened. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's road map for getting students back to classrooms had been highly anticipated. But it's guidance is just that the agency cannot force schools to reopen. And agency officials were careful to say they're not calling for a mandate that all U. S schools be reopened Cape if they, Sam Arnold reports. The CDC released new guidelines advising that K through 12. Schools can resume in person learning if they implement universal and correct mask wearing hand washing and physical distancing. Cleaning of facilities and contact tracing notably absent from the recommendations were guidelines that educators should be vaccinated before returning to in person learning. The guidelines also did not specifically recommend testing for the virus as part of their strategy. The recommendations, said Vaccination of teachers, while important was not a prerequisite for reopening, according to the CDC. Evidence suggests that many K through 12 schools that have strictly implemented mitigation strategies have been able to safely open for in person instruction and remain open. CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky emphasized that local governments should consider community transmission levels when deciding when and how to open schools in their area. With the release of this operational strategy. CDC is not mandating that school's re opened Thies recommendations simply provides schools a long needed road map for how to do so safely under different levels of disease in the community. The evidence cited by the CDC suggests that in person learning has not been identified as a substantial driver of covert 19 community spread. A New York Times survey of 175 pediatric disease experts found that most experts agreed it was safe to open in person learning with 86% of experts surveyed, saying they do not believe vaccines are necessary to reopening. President Biden, an ally of unions, has faced mounting pressure to stick to his promise of reopening schools within his 1st 100 days. Teachers unions supported by them for president, but say that resource is must be in place to fund all the mitigation measures recommended by the CDC. Becky Pringle is the president of the National Education Association. Speaking on C Span, she said that Wisconsin schools cited in CDC research that had reopened successfully were provided with ample funding to put mitigation measures in place. No schools that reopen there. They have sizable donation from a private foundation. To provide the additional resources so all the students and educators had mass. They had small class size and so they could socially distance they had testing available. They had people to do the tracing and they were working with educators to think about how they could bring those soon's back safely. We have to have all of those measures in place. Biden has pledged $130 billion to help schools update buildings by protective gear and enact other recommended safety measures as part of the coronavirus relief package he is hoping to pass in the coming weeks.

COVID-19 and the cost of vaccine nationalism
"Are approved by regulatory bodies around the world countries. They're scrambling to inoculate their citizens, however. Certain countries to push ahead some health officials air raising alarms about the threat of vaccine nationalism, the tendency of governments to hoard vaccines for their own populations. Simon marks reports There are growing concerns that the poorest countries in the world are losing out in the fight for coronavirus inoculations. Dr. Jerome Kim is director general of the International Vaccine Institute. He says he's worried that many countries are practicing what he calls vaccine nationalism. And we have this Kovacs mechanism that will provide 20% of vaccines. Two countries to 189 countries around the world, regardless of their wealth, or or or need. Everyone needs the vaccine. We're gonna have to vaccinate, you know, eight billion people. The problem right now is that several countries have over ordered vaccine. For instance, Canada has ordered 4 to 5 times more than it actually needs. The United States has ordered more than it needs the European Union has. I mean, the countries have done that, in order to ensure that their populations get sufficient vaccine. We need to start to understand the supply chain understand when those vaccines are going to become available and then allocate those vaccines the parts of the world that really do need a vaccine solution, he says. It won't be until 2023 that there's enough vaccine available for the entire global population. Until then, he warns that any inequities in global distribution will only exacerbate the possibility of additional cove in 19 strains spreading even in communities that hope to achieve mass vaccination.
