The U.S. Marine Corps could fire up to 8,000 Marines for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Reported by Newsweek.
The Corps has already discharged 169 military personnel, including 66 last week. The Marines had to be fully vaccinated by November 28 or apply for medical or religious exemption to avoid being fired.
Earlier, the director of the American Institute for Translational Research, Eric Topol, warned that a new “monstrous” wave of coronavirus was approaching the United States, which would lead to a manifold increase in the number of cases. According to the scientist, this is due to the greater infectiousness of the omicron strain of the coronavirus, which, although it is carried by most patients in a mild form, is capable of paralyzing the work of hospitals in the country.
