The Citizens Policy Foundation believes that the Covid 19 Pandemic is still the most important issue facing all Americans and the world. We are providing this space for individuals and organizations to post the fact about the virus and the links necessary to gain the knowledge to protect ourselves and our communities.
The United States is exercising diplomatic leadership to mobilize an international response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its secondary impacts while strengthening global biosecurity infrastructure to address both the current crisis and future health-related threats. Our principles for sharing U.S. vaccines include achieving broad global coverage; responding to surges and other urgent situations and public health needs; and responding to as many country requests as possible, including our neighbors. We are sharing vaccines as a continuation of our decades-long work to promote global public health and security.
The Citizens Policy Foundation believes that we all have a part to play in promoting. Educating and publishing for all Americans to understand the seriousness of the deadly Covid -19 virus. By working together we can finally achieve the goal of protecting our communities. We are going to fight to make sure every American has access accurate information about the virus and how to act to protect yourselves.
You can contribute to this important membership segment of the Citizens Policy Foundation by joining one of our Facebook pages or our website. Our aim is to provide training in research, education and action, by providing internet forums to communicate information about national, regional, and local activities as well as opportunities set policy, communicates that policy, and actively hear from and interact with elected leaders.
As long as the virus is spreading anywhere, it’s a threat to people everywhere, including Americans here at home. That’s why earlier this year, President Biden announced that the United States will share over 1.2 billion doses with countries around the world.
The emergence of the Omicron variant – and the reintroduction of national lockdowns, travel bans and quarantines – has reinforced the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join experts and leaders to find out the possible scenarios for COVID in 2022 and beyond.

According to some experts, a new “stealth” version of the omicron variant, discovered in California, seems to be harder to detect and is even more contagious, though it’s unclear how dangerous it is. This comes as more people are being infected with Covid-19 for a second time.
The latest Covid-19 wave during the busy holiday travel season caught the U.S. flat-footed when it came to one key tool in its pandemic-fighting arsenal: at-home rapid tests.
The White House has made it clear that the tests — sold over-the-counter at drugstores — are critical to keeping the economy running during the current surge of the highly contagious omicron variant and any future variants. Demand for at-home tests has soared as infection and hospitalization rates soared to unforeseen levels in early 2022, leading to supply constraints and accusations of price gouging.
The fight against Covid-19 appears far from over, and those at-home rapid tests look poised to play a crucial role in federal and state efforts to mitigate another tough pandemic-era winter. The U.S. vaccination rate has stalled, leaving pockets of Americans vulnerable to severe disease. Experts also point out that kids under 5 years of age still don’t have access to an approved vaccine. Even vaccinated Americans are testing positive for Covid-19, and researchers are trying to understand what that means for how well the variants spread.
Federal regulators at the Food and Drug Administration have been criticized for not authorizing at-home Covid tests quickly enough to match demand. Meanwhile, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s evolving testing guidance for the vaccinated also has confused test manufacturers, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Watch the video above to find out how the U.S. fell behind on its at-home Covid testing strategy, and what the Biden administration is doing to fix it.

Can you differentiate between illnesses by tracking your fever?
Fever is common in Covid-19, and also likely to appear with the flu and other viruses. But fevers that result from the novel coronavirus tend to come on stronger and cause chills and major discomfort even if they don’t climb far past 100.4 degrees, says Panagis Galiatsatos, a physician in pulmonary and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore. “Covid-19 fevers are not subtle,” he says. “Look beyond the number to see how the fever is making you feel.” https://apple.news/AxiaIgsG1S5GYsuNDnTrhgA
