Pointer – Foreign – Within a month, 20 million Americans will lose their health insurance

According to the one-sentence announcement of the Presidential Office on Tuesday, the adoption of the legislation into law will end emergency measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, MTI announced.

The public health emergency will end on May 11 in the United States.

As we wrote, for this reason, millions of American citizens will lose their state-paid health insurance, within the so-called Medicaid program. During the coronavirus emergency, 20 million Americans have taken advantage of free health insurance, which is funded by the state.

At the same time, asylum seekers and illegal immigrants will be glad that the danger situation is over.

Until now, with reference to the so-called Article 42, they can be expelled from the country with simplified procedures, mostly on the grounds that they pose a danger to the population in terms of the spread of the disease.

However, it appears that Republican-led states will do everything they can to keep Section 42 in place. The matter has been taken to the Supreme Court, and it is assumed that no decision will be taken on the matter before June.

Joe Biden did not agree with the congressional decision, but after the House and Senate passed it in March, he will not veto it.

The 435-member House of Representatives voted on the Republican Majority Act in February, which was rejected by nearly two hundred Democrats.

The national emergency gave the government powers that facilitated measures against the pandemic. However, in daily life, the officially active epidemic emergency has had little impact in recent months.

US President Donald Trump declared a public health emergency declared on January 30, 2020, and then a national emergency was introduced in March 2020.

According to official data, the Covid-19 pandemic has killed more than 1.13 million people in the United States.
