COVID-19 Unvaccinated Workers From Harlem To Hollis To Be Terminated

February 13, 2022

About 3,000 New York City employees face termination today if they have not received a COVID-19 vaccination. The mandate was imposed by former Mayor Bill de Blasio, but incumbent Mayor Eric Adams has said he plans to enforce it.

Termination notices went in the mail early in the week and take effect today. Adams said those who aren’t in compliance have essentially quit their jobs.

“We have to be very clear – people must be vaccinated if they are New York City employees,” Adams said. “Everyone understood that.”

U.S. death toll questioned

As the official U.S. COVID-19 death toll approaches 1 million, some health experts have begun to question its accuracy.

They point out that deaths from other causes are sometimes counted as COVID-19 fatalities because the patient also had the virus.

Dr. William Schaffner, professor of infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, says it’s often up to the attending physician to make the call, especially in cases where the cause is not that clear.

But he doubts that the death toll is inflated.

“Early on, there was not widespread testing, so we underestimated the deaths,” Schaffner told Medical News Today. “Now, the death data are more reliable reports Consumer Affairs.

There may be some plus or minus, but death data are pretty accurate.”
