The Delta strain of COVID continues to cause a lot of trouble in the US, bringing more and more infections day by day. Hospitals from Texas are dealing with increasing numbers of patients, as the buildings can become overwhelmed. The NRA (National Rifle Association) announced via its official website that it was canceling the annual meeting from Houston because of COVID.

The gun-rights advocacy group explained the following on NRA.org:

Due to concern over the safety of our NRA family and community, we regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibits,

The NRA’s top priority is ensuring the health and well-being of our members, staff, sponsors, and supporters.

However, humanity seems to be getting better at dealing with the COVID pandemic. Experts continue to have a lot of faith in the vaccines, and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) recently granted full approval for the use of Pfizer’s vaccine.

Should more people get vaccinated for COVID?

Since many people were skeptical about COVID vaccination, everybody is expecting that they’ll change their mind after FDA’s approval. However, we’re not here to tell anybody that vaccination is a thing to consider or not. Everybody can decide for himself.

Another major concern is that reopening schools in the US might have caused a surge in coronavirus infections when it comes to children. Former FDA chief Dr. Scott Gottlieb believes that the true number of the little ones infected with COVID is much higher than reported. The doctor declared for TheDailyBeast.com:

As schools reopen, the schools could become focal points of community transmission and can become environments that aren’t safe for children if we can’t control very large outbreaks from happening in those settings.
