In New York City, America, a campaign is being run to give money to people for getting the Coronavirus Vaccine.

New York City is giving $100 (about Rs 7,430) to its residents for getting the coronavirus vaccine. The more contagious delta variant of COVID-19 is spreading in America. This is the reason why new cases are increasing rapidly in the country. News media ‘The Hill’ quoted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as saying that New York will give $100 to citizens who get the vaccine at any vaccination center in the city during the vaccination starting Friday. Huh.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a news briefing, Vaccination is the main weapon in fighting the virus. We can talk about many other issues with COVID. But if we are not talking about vaccination then we are not talking about solution. He said, if you want to recover from the disease. So you have to get vaccinated. No matter what, you want to enjoy your life to the fullest. You need vaccination. This announcement has come at a time when the mayor had said a few days ago that all the employees of the city will have to get the vaccine or get the corona test done daily.
71% people got one dose of vaccine
Bill de Blasio said that 9 million vaccine doses have been administered in New York City. According to the New York City Health Department, 66 percent of adults are fully vaccinated and 71 percent have received at least one vaccine dose. At the same time, according to local time, on Tuesday, the ‘Center for Disease Control and Prevention’ (CDC) updated its guidelines regarding its masks. It said that in some cases vaccinated people also need to wear a mask, so that the Delta variant in the US can be prevented from spreading.
Advice given to apply masks even inside homes
The CDC’s suggestion said that in places where there is a risk of spreading ‘substantial’ and ‘high’ COVID-19, people who are fully vaccinated should wear masks indoors. It covers two-thirds of America’s counties. In recent weeks, cases of COVID have increased across the country due to the Delta variant. Because of this, many health experts say that America is lagging behind in its fight against the epidemic. Former CDC director Tom Frieden told CNN that there could be 200,000 daily corona cases in the US in the coming weeks.
