BASH: “So, doctor, what changed?”
MURTHY: “Well, Dana, it’s good to be with you. Let’s talk about the announcement and what prompted it. You know, the announcement that the president made include a number of measures that will help us address the delta variant. The requirements we just heard about are one part of it. But they’re only one part of that includes also measures increase of our testing capacity, shore up our hospitals and health care systems struggling with delta. What the president and all of us have said as public health leaders from the earliest part of this pandemic is that we have to use every lever of government, and we all in the private sector have to do everything we can to tackle this virus. The requirements the president announced are an example of that. Earlier in the summer, the president announced requirements for federal workers to attest the vaccination.”
