Despite the fact that the number of Americans who have died from COVID has continued to climb, President Joe Biden pronounced the pandemic "over" in the US.


Even if "we still have a problem," according to Mr. Biden, things are moving in the right direction. According to statistics, the virus kills 400 or more Americans on average every day.


The World Health Organization's (WHO) director stated last week that the pandemic's conclusion is "in sight." In an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes, Mr. Biden stated that the US is still putting in "a lot of work" to manage the virus in an interview.


The president made gestures toward the throng as the interview, which aired over the weekend, was partially shot on the floor of the Detroit Auto Show. You'll see that nobody is wearing a mask, "he remarked. "Everyone appears to be in quite excellent health... It appears to be changing."

The continuing COVID-19 public health emergency, which has been in effect since January 2020, was extended by US authorities in August until October 13.


Over a million Americans have perished from the epidemic to this point.


According to data from Johns Hopkins University, there have been more than 3,000 fatalities in the previous week, bringing the seven-day average to over 400.


Within a single week in January 2021, the virus was believed to have killed nearly 23,000 individuals. It is estimated that 65% of Americans have received all recommended vaccinations. In the US, several government vaccination requirements still apply, including to military members, healthcare professionals, and foreign nationals flying into the country.

Public health authorities have recently voiced cautious confidence that the globe is moving closer to a pandemic recovery, but they have not stopped advising people to exercise caution.


The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said the situation improved on Monday.

However, he acknowledged that the current daily fatality rate is still "unacceptably high" in remarks made at a Washington, DC think-tank. If we are to be able to "live with the virus," we are not where we need to be, he added.

Additionally, he issued a warning that fresh COVID-19 variations may potentially manifest, particularly during the upcoming winter.


Federal health experts have urged Americans to maintain a current vaccination schedule since the US recently authorized new vaccinations that correspond to the form of the Omicron strain that is now prevalent in the nation.

The world has "never been in a stronger position to end the epidemic," according to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of WHO, who made this statement last week.


He responded, "We're not there yet." But the end is close at hand.
