    The United States President Joe Biden announced that those fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will no longer need to wear a mask, except in crowded spaces such as public transports or hospitals. The move is seen as another push to convince more Americans to seek vaccination, like 59% of the population has already done. Young Americans aged 12 or more can now get a jab.
