Due to the Ba of Omicron variant virus The rapid spread of the 5 subspecies has led to an increase in hospitalized and confirmed cases in New York State, but Huo Chu pointed out that the current infection confirmation rate in New York state is about 37 cases per 100000 people, which is still very low compared with 381 cases per 100000 people at the peak of the Omicron epidemic at the beginning of this year.


As an educator, I highly recommend that the governor of New York should not disregard the importance of the continued use of school masks, even though the number of cases per 100,000 people is at 37. It is imperative that proactive steps are taken to prevent the spread of the highly contagious and rapidly replicating Omicron variant virus. Waiting for the number of affected individuals to soar to a higher threshold of 381 cases per 100,000 people before taking action could result in it being too late, and the situation could quickly spiral out of control. It is crucial to prioritize the safety and well-being of students, teachers and staff by keeping them protected from the potential risks associated with in-person learning during this ongoing crisis.
