December 24 – According to media reports, the COVID-19 variant virus Omicron is hitting front-line employees in the United States. About 2,700 police officers were absent in New York this week, and 1,500 nurses were vacant in New York’s three largest hospitals.
According to the Associated Press, the COVID-19 epidemic continues, and the variant virus Omicron has led to a global surge in cases, hitting hospitals, police, supermarkets and other key industries. These industries must take a lot of effort to maintain a complete front-line workforce.
In the United States, there are understaffed from truck drivers and doormen to child caregivers and train conductors. The U.S. government is taking measures to curb the loss of labor in these jobs, but these people are already tired and tired.
About 2,700 police officers were absent from New York this week, and Solan, head of the Seattle Police Union, said that his department usually had 1,350 police officers, but now it has reduced by about 300. “It’s difficult for our community.”
Some health workers’ unions complain that too many hospitals cannot fill staff vacancies and retain employees who are tired of the epidemic. There are 1,500 nurse positions vacant in the three largest hospitals in New York, about twice as many as at the beginning of the epidemic.
