President Biden sought to explain Friday why he can't be more specific on when every American who wants a vaccine can get one, or when the country will be able to return to normal.

He said that returning children to the classroom was the Welsh government’s “top priority,” with children age three to seven returning to face-to-face learning from Monday.

As of Friday, almost 840,000 people in Wales have received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine, equivalent to a third of the adult population of Wales, Drakeford said.

California will set aside 10% of Covid-19 vaccine doses to be used for teachers and child care workers in an effort to resume in-person education, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced in a news conference Friday.

Over the next two weeks, the state expects to receive nearly three million vaccine doses, which will be administered at 1,100 sites throughout California’s 58 counties.

As for vaccines expected this week, some 702,000 doses were delayed by extreme weather elsewhere in the country.

The House’s bill also closely resembles President Biden’s rescue plan and includes more money for schools, vaccine distribution and funding for state and local governments

New York State reported 3. 49% overall statewide positivity, and a 42 day decline according to its seven-day average, Cuomo said during a briefing Friday.

Schools may open no matter how much virus is spreading in a community, if they take the right precautions, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Friday.

“So in, in the areas that remain red – and there are about two-thirds of districts now, although the numbers continue to decline – in the numbers that remain red, we say with universal masking and physical distancing and densification of classrooms, there are opportunities for in-person learning, as well as for middle and high school learning, and assuming you're able to do the densification that we suggest,” Walensky said.

The US should have vaccine safety data on high school age kids by the beginning of fall, but probably not on younger children until early next year, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday.

Companies are just starting tests of younger age groups but have been testing their vaccines on 12 to 17-year-olds, Fauci told a White House briefing.

So what they're going to be doing in April, starting in April, they are going to be studying 12-year-olds down to 5-to 6-year-olds,” Fauci said.

Companies can tests their vaccines on fewer children because they have safety and efficacy data from adults, Fauci said.

Cases, hospitalizations and deaths from the coronavirus are all dropping in the United States, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday.
