There has been a sharp rise in the number of covid-19 infections around the country. That is why CNN invited Dr. Rochelle Walensky to shed light on the situation and give his expert advice on the best solution to the problem. Dr. Walensky started by saying that it was hard to understand why there have been many infections because the government has procured and distributed millions of vaccines all over the country.
However, he noted that most States recording high covid-19 infections have a low number of vaccinated residents. He also pointed out that some of the vaccines have not been effective against the new variances that keep emerging from time to time. As a result, many residents have been contracting the covid-19 virus before researchers develop a more effective vaccine.
Dr. Walensky noted that the medical records showed that most people who have lost their lives had not taken the covid-19 vaccine. According to him, the records also indicate that more youth are contracting the virus than senior citizens. That is the opposite of his situation in the initial stages of the pandemic. However, Dr. Rochelle said that residents should not worry about the high number of infections because doctors plan to vaccinate more people in the next few weeks.
Dr. Rochelle Walensky Shares His Thoughts on the Best Measures to Prevent More Infections
Dr. Rochelle Walensky was appreciative of the government for providing enough vaccines for every resident in the country. However, he urges government officials and other influential leaders to educate people on the importance of getting the covid-19 vaccine. That is because some people have been ignoring the healthcare professionals’ advice to receive the vaccination.
In addition, other residents have been avoiding the vaccine because people have been sharing misleading information indicating that some vaccines cause side effects. Therefore, Dr. Rochelle notes that people need the truth about the vaccine to make informed decisions.
When the government first introduced the covid-19 vaccine, many people who heard the misleading information swore that they would never take it. However, as more professionals continued to explain the importance and safety of vaccines, people started changing their notions.
Dr. Walensky urges people to trust the information professionals share because they conduct extensive research before providing advice. Unfortunately, many people have been sharing information that has been spreading panic, leading to vaccine apathy. As a result, some of the people ignoring the vaccine have contacted the covid-19 virus and died.
