The mission of the vaccine to prevent SCOTUS “a step backwards for public health:” Vivek Murthy This Week

The requirements make the “workplace safer for workers as well as for customers.”

The Supreme Court’s decision to block the Biden administration’s vaccine or vaccine testing requirement for large private businesses is a “step backwards for public health,” says US Surgeon General. , General Vivek Murthy, told fellow countryman Martha Raddatz of “This Week” on Sunday.

“Well, the news of the workplace requirement being blocked is disappointing, Martha. It’s a step backwards for public health. Because what these requests are ultimately useful for is more than just protection. protect the community at large; but also make our workplace safer for our workers, as well as for our customers,” said Murthy.

“So the good news is that there’s nothing stopping workplaces from voluntarily making reasonable requests. In fact, many companies have already done so; a third of Fortune 100 companies have made it so. make these requests and many other companies out there already, so we’re definitely encouraging companies to make these requests voluntarily.”

Murthy’s comments come as President Joe Biden’s administration continues to ramp up efforts to prevent the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

Senior White House Officials say on friday that the administration will launch a new website on Wednesday to request free rapid COVID tests at home. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also updated its mask-wearing guidelines on Friday, writing that Americans may want to use higher quality respirators such as KN95 or N95 respirators.
