Few schools should fully reopen under CDC’s new guidelines

Few schools should fully reopen under CDC’s new guidelines

"They don't - the evidence so far is children aren't the people most likely to get Covid", Biden said in the clip while addressing the little girl. Biden had pledged in December to reopen "the majority of our schools" in his first 100 days but has since faced increasing questions about how he would define and achieve that goal, with school districts operating under a patchwork of different virtual and in-person learning arrangements nationwide. "By the end of July, we'll have over 600 million doses, enough to vaccinate every single American".

For example, the health agency says teachers and students need to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

The other problem is that "a lot of people don't know how to register" for a vaccine, Biden said.

In a clarification of comments made by Psaki, Biden said there was a mistake in communication when it was reported that a school could be considered open if it was open just one day per week.

BIDEN, asked about assertions from the White House that at least one day a week of classroom schooling would deliver on his reopening pledge: "No, that's not true".

President Joe Biden on Tuesday came down heavily on the Chinese government slamming it for the human rights abuses it has been making but in doing so he also appeared to condone the Chinese Communist Party's genocide on Uighurs in Xinjiang as a "cultural norm". "Teachers should be a priority", Harris said.

He said he expected many schools would push to stay open through the summer, but suggested reopening would take longer for high schools due to a higher risk of contagion among older students. "Number One, there is some history of Blacks being used as guinea pigs in other experiments over the last 50, 75, or 100 years, so there is concern" about vaccine hesitancy in that population as a result.

Mr. Biden has proposed $130 billion in funds for K-12 schools in his $1.9-trillion Covid-19 relief plan, now before Congress.


'That's kind of a scary thing too, ' the president said.

Cooper pressed Biden on whether he meant that the vaccine would be available or whether the shots would have been administered by that time.

"If you look at the projection, I would imagine by the time we get to April, that will be what I would call, for [lack] of better wording, 'open season, '" Fauci told NBC's "Today" show.

Biden shut down talk of canceling $50,000 in student debt via executive action, as was proposed in a resolution earlier this month by key Democrats: "I will not make that happen".

Mr. Biden's appearance came after his predecessor, Mr. Trump, was acquitted by the Senate in his second impeachment trial. Mr. Biden also said white supremacists, whom he called "demented" and "dangerous people", pose the greatest domestic-terrorism threat in America.

"A year from now, I think that there'll be significantly fewer people having to be socially distanced, wearing a mask".

"I find myself extremely self-conscious", Mr. Biden added, saying he was unaccustomed to someone "handing me my suitcoat".
