U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that more than 80% of teachers and school staff had received at least one vaccination shot but that variants of the coronavirus are spreading and generating a rise in cases.
“We aren’t at the finish line. We still have a lot of work to do. We’re still in a life-or-death race,” Biden said at a White House event.
He said that by no later than April 19, every adult 18 or older will be eligible to be vaccinated. “No more confusing rules,” Biden said.
