As the day goes on, the number of covid 19 casualties in USA keep increasing.
On September 9, 2021, the number of both confirmed and presumptive positive cases of the COVID-19 disease reported in the United States had reached 40.5 million and around 652 thousand deaths were reported among these cases.
The chances of infection still remains high while news cases per day has been reducing since the beginning of 2021. But since late July, 2021, it started rising again.
It has also been noted that underlying health issues can make covid 19 cases worst and the death rate due to covid 19 rises with age.
In New York State, the rate of death due to Covid 19 of adults from age 65 to 74 is estimated to be around 1,131 per 100,000 people. As of August 23, 2021, there had been more than 43,300 COVID-19 deaths throughout the State.
According to the Centre For Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRP), regardless of the production of 3 Covid 19 vaccines, 25% of Americans in a new poll from Monmouth University still refused to be vaccinated.
Many experts have the belief that if 70% to 80% of the public does not gain COVID-19 immunity through infection or vaccination, herd immunity will be almost impossible for the nation to obtain, especially for the fact that 24% of the population is children, who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.
Following the increases in covid 19 cases in USA and the refusal of some citizens to be vaccinated, the President of the United States of America while giving an address on 9th September, 2021 said he is going to force millions of people to get vaccinated against their will.
In his words, he said "Look, folks—here’s the deal. For real this time. No joke. The words on the screen I’m supposed to read are saying that we’re gonna force millions of people to get vaccinated against their will. Gotta do it folks."
To enforce this, we’re just gonna have ourselves a little Civil War. It’s been a while since we had one of those. Let’s just fight it out until all the unvaccinated people are dead or we’re all dead which will stop the spread of COVID. Win-win, folks.”
President Joe Biden promised Americans that they will not lose in this forthcoming civil war because they do not have any F-15's or nuclear weapon.
He added that whosoever survives the war without being vaccinated will be sent to special camps where they will be taught the need for being vaccinated.
Meanwhile, the Republicans have reacted to Biden's statement.
The Fox News host, Sean Hannity said that the President was being too critical and harsh on those who have not been vaccinated with the steps he is taking, and urged his listeners to consult their medical professionals before obeying the "broadband edicts" ordered by "Dr. Joe Biden."
Hannity emphasised that he is only interested in the life of his audience. Your life, every life, is important, it is important to me, he said.
He added that he wants all Americans regardless of their political views to be healthy.
In my opinion, it will be a violation against human rights to force people to receive vaccination that they refused receiving.
