The US government is implementing the response teams in highly vulnerable communities, as stated by Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former FDA chief under the former President Donald Trump.
Biden-led US government is following the best approach to combat the deadly COVID-19 virus and its variants, such as the delta variant.
He further added that the US administration is doing the right thing in ways of shifting their strategies. He also explained that the targeted response towards the pandemic is expected to help the teams focus on vaccinating the highly vulnerable communities to fight the pandemic and its delta variant.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb further added that they are required to shift to a grassroots strategy in the current conditions and distribute resources among the local communities, allowing the local groups to encourage people for whole vaccination.
As per reliable reports, there has been a sharp rise in the COVID-19 cases, especially the Delta variant, across the country, which currently contributes to one-fourth of the infected patients in the US. Officials state that it is likely to become a dominant strain in the country by overshadowing the current dominant alpha strain of the virus.
Director at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rochelle Walensky, stated that the lagging in the vaccination rates is the reason for the rise in spikes.
She added that only one-third of the countries are vaccinated, constituting less than 30% of the population.
