Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

    What business does Biden have speaking as though he is a ‘doctor’/‘diagnostician??
    It is dangerous to provide uninformed/incorrect misinformation.
    That’s what experts are for!
    Introduce them then LET THEM SPEAK!
    I haven’t heard many speak accurately or in a manner the average American can understand.

    I don’t really care what Biden thinks these days. Based on what has come to the USA since November 2021, his thinking has destroyed what used to be the nation that led the world. I fear that if Biden’s thinking continues for two more years there will not be enough left of the USA to hold the world together.

    But it is not really Biden’s thinking that caused the decline and fall of the USA; it has been the thinking of those who supported and pushed to elect Biden and his minions – or I should say, the Democratic Left, and its figure-head minion, Biden. That group, “those who supported and pushed to elect,” was the Media and its favored political party, driven by hatred for the last successful president, who for three years improved the national well-being. I suspect that future historians will be calling Donald Trump the Last Great President of a nation that fell prey to Socialism and Equity.

    Yes
    As Viruses mutate/interact they tend to be more infectious but less virulent.
    Think of the genetic contribution each ‘parent’ makes to its ‘offspring’ (1/2), the next generation is diluted again by 1/2 – making the initial strain’s contribution to the next strain 1/4, et seq
