U.S. President Joe Biden has decided to mandate self-quarantine of immigrants to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). This is to prove that all passengers who intend to board the U.S.-bound aircraft were tested negative for Corona 19 within 72 hours of departure, and added the obligation to self-isolate after entering the country. The Biden administration, which was launched on the 20th (local time), has made overcoming the pandemic a top priority.
President Biden signed an executive order related to Corona 19 on the 21st, saying, “Tourists coming to the United States from abroad must undergo diagnostic tests before boarding (airplane) and self-isolate after arriving in the United States.” “More than 400,000 Americans died of Corona 19. He said, “This is an (administrative order) wartime operation.” However, President Biden did not specifically mention the date and period of quarantine when the duty to quarantine begins. Currently, according to the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), self-isolation after entry is a recommendation rather than compulsory, and the period has been shortened from 14 days to 10 days. Earlier, the U.S. health authorities announced that starting on the 26th of this month, passengers on flights to the U.S. are required to submit negative Corona 19 confirmations.
On the 21st, President Biden made it mandatory to wear a mask in public transportation such as airports, airplanes, trains, intercity buses, and passenger ships through an administrative order. In addition, it has decided to supply personal hygiene products, inspection materials, and vaccines necessary for COVID-19 quarantine by mobilizing the Defense Materials Production Act (DPA). President Biden predicted that the number of Corona 19 deaths in the United States will increase by 100,000 over the next six weeks, and the cumulative death toll will soon exceed 500,000. “We are still in the dark winter of the pandemic,” he said. “We will still have to wait several months or more for the situation to improve to the level we want.” The Biden administration decided to push for a five-year extension of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Agreement (New Start), which limits the scale of nuclear weapons in both countries to a certain level between the United States and Russia. White House spokesman Jen Saki said at a briefing on the 21st, “The United States is willing to push for a five-year extension of New Start,” and “the President also thought that New Start was in line with the United States’ national security interests.” The newsstart was signed by the two countries in 2010 during the days of former President Barack Obama, and limits the number of nuclear warheads in both countries to 1,550 each. The only remaining disarmament agreement between the mirrors, it expires on the 5th of next month.
