Get ready for the next phase of lockdowns and restrictions, as this message is quickly being parroted by other outlets in power – seemingly at the ready.
As the Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz, also stated on Twitter: “The pandemic is not over.”
The Chancellor then went on to say Germany needs “more money,” “more vaccinations” and “local production of vaccines worldwide” to combat Covid-19. Then he thanked Joe Biden for his efforts with the Global COVID summit.
The pandemic is not over. What we need is more money to fight Covid19, more vaccinations and local production of vaccines worldwide, a strong @WHO and more resilience of our healthcare systems. Thanks, @potus, for this #globalCOVIDsummit which helps taking action together. pic.twitter.com/dXzTBmfuTS

None of these comments are coming out of the blue, however, as media networks have been alluding to a rise in BA.2 variant cases despite mask mandates being lifted almost everywhere, social distance measures eased, and plenty of “fully vaccinated” and “boosted” people.
The New York Times has even gone as far as to say that the US is in a “race against variants” of Covid-19, which is an interesting way to phrase it considering the US government’s own negligence when it comes to tracking and tracing new cases.
Just less than a month ago, the New York Intelligencer had this to say about the potential incoming wave of cases: “In the aftermath of America’s Omicron wave, public concern about COVID has fallen off a cliff.”
Then the publication went on to accuse Congress of not “prioritizing pandemic funding anymore,” citing the wrongfulness of this lack of focus because “the pandemic is definitely not over.”
Most Americans recall Biden during his U.S. State of the Union address reassuring Americans that Covid-19 was on its way out. But that has quickly morphed into a cheap attempt to regain some much-needed approval points at the time.
Biden did say during his speech, however: “I cannot promise a new variant won’t come. But I can promise you we’ll do everything within our power to be ready if it does.”
Per Fox News, on Thursday Biden marked the loss of 1 million Americans due to the pandemic in a written statement. Then he ordered flags to be at half-staff to mark this milestone.
“Today, we mark a tragic milestone: one million American lives lost to COVID-19. One million empty chairs around the dinner table. Each an irreplaceable loss. Each leaving behind a family, a community, and a nation forever changed because of this pandemic,” Biden wrote. “Jill and I pray for each of them.”
“May God bless the one million American lives lost and their loved ones left behind,” he concluded.
Remember when the now-president campaigned on the promise of “shutting down the virus?”
