US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has been around the media and has not only defended the recently announced Covid-19 vaccine mandates by President Joe Biden, but has also promised further measures in the coming days.
Murthy told CNN on Sunday that there was “There will be more actions, especially on the world front” taken above Biden “aggressive” vaccine mandate to help slow the spread of Covid-19. The health official suggested this news “Aggressive actions” could be announced by the president ahead of the United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 21.
Murthy did not specify what he thinks these new steps for Biden will be.

Biden previously announced a vaccination mandate for most federal workers and contractors working with the government. Companies with more than 100 employees will also be required to subject their employees to frequent vaccinations or tests, a mandate that has already faced a wave of pushback and many promises of retaliatory measures.
Murthy did his best to defend the highly controversial mandates on Sunday, seeing them as a “appropriate” response to the virus due to the rise of more transmissible variants like Delta, which the health official called “Curved ball”.
“This is not an unusual phenomenon”, Murthy spoke to ABC about the vaccination warrants. “What it is, I think an appropriate response for us to recognize is that if we want our economy to come back, if we want our schools to stay in session, we need to take steps to make sure that workplaces and learning environments are safe and these requirements will help to do that.
Biden’s tenure spans millions of Americans and faces potential challenges from private companies like the conservative outlet Daily Wire, as well as Republican governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis who have voiced their opposition.
Despite strong opposition to the warrants, Murthy suggested to CNN that the warrants, which could force millions out of work when enforced, won’t just be “Improve public health”, corn “give people more peace of mind” once they are applied.
