New York: first major city in U.S. to require a vaccination certificate

New York City becomes the first major city in the United States to require a vaccination certificate for indoor events: real-time COVID-19 update

New York City will soon require people to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination so that people can enter indoor restaurants, gyms, and entertainment venues.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Tuesday that this new requirement will take effect on August 16, marking the first such requirement in a major US city.

Announcement from White House on Tuesday:

At the same time, the White House announced on Tuesday that the United States has provided more than 110 million doses of COVID vaccine to more than 60 countries, and President Joe Biden is expected to discuss this milestone in his national speech on Tuesday afternoon.

Biden is also expected to speak on the issue of vaccination in the United States because of concerns about the increase in infections partly driven by the delta variant.

The total number of deaths:

  • According to the White House, Florida and Texas accounted for one-third of all COVID cases reported last week. Florida broke two records this weekend-the number of cases and the number of hospitalizations. The total number of deaths across the state in Texas now exceeds that of New York, the early epicenter of the American pandemic.
  • The United States reported 599,334 cases in the week ending Sunday.
    According to USA Today’s analysis of Johns Hopkins University data, the United States now reports 2,500 deaths every day.
  • The number of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Alabama climbed to 1,583 on Monday. State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris said that although there have been some “breakthrough” cases among the vaccinated population, this number is only a small percentage of the total cases, and most breakthrough cases are mild.
  • Breakthrough cases that require hospitalization are less likely.
  • “These people usually don’t get sick or die,” Harris said in a Q&A video with Governor Kay Ivey last week. “Currently, about 1.6 million people in the state have been vaccinated.
    We wouldn’t be surprised to see that 5{7d6bb1f761e691f027164c9fe6d1ebbc4659a250013ce39dc45a15ede39dbac5} or 10{7d6bb1f761e691f027164c9fe6d1ebbc4659a250013ce39dc45a15ede39dbac5} of these people are infected. This is also a lot of people. But in most cases, the vaccine does It can prevent them from getting really sick.”
  • In Kentucky, where only about half of the residents are vaccinated against COVID-19, hospitals and other public health officials worry that the increase in new cases — more than 1,000 cases per day — will lead to more hospitalizations.
