As America and the world continue to navigate through a global pandemic, many of our international healthcare professionals have voiced concern about working and living in the U.S. Although life in the U.S. is surely not back to normal, the nation continues to make strides towards reopening America and remain hopeful for a healthy and safe future for all.
- New Covid-19 Cases in the U.S. Are on the Decline
According to the CDC, the daily number of new Covid-19 cases are declining, as well as, the daily trends for new hospital admissions. Many U.S. hospitals are taking down their COVID units as cases are lowering to manageable levels. Across the U.S., officials are lifting ‘stay at home’ orders and easing on restrictions as many states begin to reopen with new safety measures.

- Vaccinating Healthcare Workers in the U.S. Is a Top Priority
More than 40% of the U.S. adult population is fully vaccinated (as of May 6, 2021) according to the CDC, which counts for over 108 million people. Vaccination progress continues to remain a top priority in America, with a focus on our high-risk population, including healthcare personnel. All healthcare professionals in the U.S. are highly recommended to get vaccinated against Covid-19. To learn more about the Covid-19 vaccination for healthcare professionals in the U.S., click here.
- USA is Leading the Way in PPE Supply and Distribution
On January 21, 2021, President Joe Biden signed an Executive Order on a Sustainable Public Health Supply Chain that ensures having the supplies necessary to combat the pandemic.
“The Federal Government must act urgently and effectively to combat the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. To that end, this order directs immediate actions to secure supplies necessary for responding to the pandemic, so that those supplies are available, and remain available, to the Federal Government and State, local, tribal, and territorial authorities, as well as to America’s health care workers, health systems, and patients. These supplies are vital to the Nation’s ability to reopen its schools and economy as soon and safely as possible.”
The PPE supply has improved across the country in 2021 and hospitals are now better prepared to respond to Covid-19 threats moving forward.
