Omicron in Chicago

This Tuesday, Dr. Allison Arwady, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health, offers new updated information on Covid-19 in the city. It will also announce the expansion of vaccination clinics in Community Colleges for children and their families.
The city released a statement saying: "These events will offer Pfizer pediatric COVID-19 vaccines, as well as Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, and booster doses for all Chicagoans."
The city councilors will receive 1.5 million masks, which must be distributed to the residents of each district, this in order to reinforce the control of infections due to the new omicron variant.

"Residents or community groups interested in these masks should contact their councilman's office to obtain them."

KN95 masks are the ones that offer the best protection against any contagion, which is why Arwady recommends the use of these.

Deaths related to the virus have increased by 25% in the city of Chicago, with a report of 4,793 new daily cases, 187 hospitalizations, representing 37% compared to last week.
