On the other hand, US President Joe Biden criticized the decision taken by governors of the states of Texas and Mississippi to cancel mandatory masks wearing in public places and lift trade restrictions, saying it was a “fatal mistake.”
Biden stressed, in a statement from the White House, that “the last thing we need is a rudimentary thinking that everything is fine.”
In turn, commented White House press secretary Jane Psaki, on the decision of the two states, saying that “the whole country paid a price, because of political leaders who ignored the science when it comes to the pandemic.”
It is worth noting that the Governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves announced in a tweet via “Twitter” that “starting from Wednesday, the local authorities will lift all mandates for masks in state province and companies will be able to operate at full capacity without any rules imposed by the state.”
This decision came after Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the state will cancel the decision to wear masks, and all establishments will open from March 10, indicating that Texas will remove restrictions imposed on determining the number of customers who can enter restaurants.
