- Routine virus testing is effective overall employer strategy for providing employee safety and business continuity
- More research needs to be done on how long vaccines are effective, if booster shots will be needed
- Only 26% of the U.S. is fully vaccinated; vaccinated individuals can still spread the virus
United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network provides solutions that fit the ever-changing needs of the nation’s workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic through the distribution of rapid antigen tests and COVID-19 rapid kit testing. As employers begin to reopen worksites, routine virus testing is an effective overall strategy for providing employee safety and business continuity.
Chief medical advisor to the president Anthony Fauci, MD, has stated that booster shots for COVID-19 may be needed (https://ibn.fm/NWcBr). The vaccines currently being offered are said to provide protection for at least six months, but more research needs to be done on how long they are effective. The appearance of COVID mutations may also lead to the need for boosters. Right now vaccination efficacy is simply a moving target because the vaccines have not been around long enough to know how long they will be effective fully.
To achieve herd immunity, Fauci has said that the country needs to have 70% to 85% of the country immune either through vaccinations or previous infection. As of April 21, 2020, around 26% of the population was fully vaccinated (https://ibn.fm/w57PZ).
The experts agree that it will take time to suppress the spread entirely. The fact that those who are vaccinated are still capable of spreading the virus to others makes the process even slower; the task becomes even more daunting as fewer Americans practice public health safety measures.
