8:09 pm
and we're standing in the way we haven't gotten vaccinated, do it, elizabeth, and carries associate professor of american studies on political science at george washington university. she says, the owner can variance is only one part of the problem behind the latest search. the problem is definitely with the administration, it has been slow to respond. it gets out conflicting messages. of the problem is also with the us health care system. on the one hand, we have a lot of it is regulated at the local level, so you might have mask mandates in one city and then the next city over doesn't have mask mandates and that's incredibly confusing for people. and i think last and really importantly, is that so much of the us health care system is outside of the federal government. it is privatized, it is for profit. so having the government coordinate everything is, is quite difficult given that so much of our health care is not meant to be coordinated at this level. so the biden administration has to overcome
8:10 pm
a lot like deploying the military even just to get doctors and nurses the support that they need. but part of what we see biden's challenge is that he has not coordinated the federal response in the way that i think a lot of people would have liked, for instance, getting masks out earlier, getting testing out early or even deploying 1000000000 tests is really only a little more than 2 tests per member of the u. s. population, and that's not enough for people when they feel sick or when they're not sure if they've been exposed. so we need a lot more ramping up. and they also think the bargaining ministration has to do a lot more to counter act, the really strong anti vaccine anti vaccination movement in the united states. the fact that so many people still don't even believe that cove it exists. it's seriously problematic in one place. they can step teachers in france of walked off the job and a nationwide strikes protest against the government's handling of corona virus. they say the measures in place don't go far enough to protect them from this. one

8:12 pm
say at the moment that's just not what not happening. they also want things like more masks, more protective measures, but schools are still open and that is, well, that's one of the main reason for government says that it is necessary to put these rules in place because what the government all saying is good from the beginning of this pandemic, they have made it a priority to keep schools opened or worried by education. they're worried about young people and their futures. they say it's essential the schools remain open and in fact, the prime ministers on capstone has actually just announced just a few moments ago that he will meet a trade unions leaders. he'll meet teachers to try and talk about how perhaps the situation in court schools can be improved. so it is easier for teachers and say that they feel more protected. i had such a difficult and vulnerable time here, oscillation, period in england for people with cove at 19 as being reduce. the british al secretary says that starting next week, those in quarantine where we're able to get out of isolation after 5 days. if their
