What to know about the seven-point plan to curb COVID-19

Even as the United States approached 25 million COVID-19 cases in January along with 406,000 COVID-19 related deaths; only 2.1 million people have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine- this represents less than 0.7% of the total United States population. 

For the U.S. to reach herd immunity, it’s estimated that 75% of the population must have immunity via natural infection or vaccination - the latter is preferred. 

On Thursday, January 21, 2020, the new Biden-Harris Administration released a 21-page strategy to combat the pandemic titled “National Strategy for the Covid-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness”. The plan comprises seven key points that we have summarized in this article. 


Restore trust with the American people

The administration is planning to establish a decision-making structure driven by science and data. Experts from the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) will also have a more frequent cadence to brief the public. A set of response indicators will be established and shared with the public. The CDC will still maintain a county-level COVID-19 dashboard. Disadvantaged communities will be prioritized and nationwide public health campaigns will be rolled out to kickstart the efforts.
