INFOGRAPHICS. Covid-19: From California to New York, the United States eases the pressure

These are two symbols of an American victory against the Covid-19. The governor of New York on Tuesday announced the lifting of the last restrictions in his state, which had been for long weeks the epicenter of the epidemic last year. The same day, California, the first US state to have established general containment to stem the pandemic, celebrated its “reopening” by lifting almost all health measures in place for fifteen months.

There is good news for a return to normal: the ambassadors of the 27 EU countries gave the green light on Wednesday to the addition of the United States to the list of third countries including travelers, even not vaccinated against Covid-19, can be admitted to the European Union, we learned from European sources.

All this gives hope, while the country has paid a heavy price and crossed a new threshold on Tuesday: more than 600,000 people have died of Covid-19 there since the start of the pandemic, according to figures from the Johns Hopkins University, who benchmark. A “sad milestone”, lamented President Joe Biden, calling on Americans to get vaccinated “as soon as possible”. Because it is the progress of the vaccination campaign in California and New York that made this almost normal return possible.
