Original title: U.S. police become the least willing to be vaccinated in the United States, 132 people have died from the new crown this year
Overseas Network, September 8th According to the Associated Press, as of September 6, 132 law enforcement officers in the United States have died from the new crown in 2021. Although the number of deaths from new coronary pneumonia continues to increase, the police are still the least willing to be vaccinated.According to data from the US Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Foundation, in the first half of 2021, 71 law enforcement officers in the United States died from the new crown virus. In August alone, six law enforcement officers in Florida, the United States, died within 10 days.
Although the number of deaths continues to increase, the police and other front-line workers are the least willing to be vaccinated. In the United States, 74% of adults received at least one shot of the vaccine. Many police officers were eligible for vaccination in January, but the vaccination rate reported by law enforcement agencies and fire departments is far below the national average.
With the rapid increase in cases of the delta mutant strain, US government officials issued decree requiring police and firefighters to be vaccinated, but the degree of implementation of the decree has gradually decreased. Seattle Mayor Jeanne De said that vaccinations are not only to protect yourself, but also to protect the people around them. The city requires all employees to be fully vaccinated before October 18, otherwise they will face the risk of dismissal. (Overseas Net/Li Fang Intern Compilation/Wang Ruohan)
