The Biden Regime has a new warning for those of us who survived the winter of “severe illness and death”: A new wave of Covid is coming this fall… just in time for the midterm elections.
Without offering up any new data, a senior Biden Administration official on Friday projected 100 million Americans – or approximately 1/3 of the population – could get infected with Covid this fall/early winter if Congress doesn’t provide more funding for vaccines and treatment.
And several so-called ‘experts’ agreed that a major Covid wave is around the corner because of waning immunity from Covid vaccines.
The Washington Post reported:
The Biden administration is warning the United States could see 100 million coronavirus infections and a potentially significant wave of deaths this fall and winter, driven by new omicron subvariants that have shown a remarkable ability to escape immunity.
The projection, made Friday by a senior administration official during a background briefing as the nation approaches a covid death toll of 1 million, is part of a broader push to boost the nation’s readiness and persuade lawmakers to appropriate billions of dollars to purchase a new tranche of vaccines, tests and therapeutics.
In forecasting 100 million potential infections during a cold-weather wave later this year and early next, the official did not present new data or make a formal projection. Instead, he described the fall and winter wave as a scenario based on a range of outside models of the pandemic. Those projections assume that omicron and its subvariants will continue to dominate community spread, and there will not be a dramatically different strain of the virus, the official said, acknowledging the pandemic’s course could be altered by many factors.
