Biden Extends Covid Emergency as Omicron Subvariant XBB.1.5 Spreads

The Biden Regime extended the Covid emergency once again on Wednesday as Omicron subvariant XBB.1.5 spreads.

The first Covid emergency was imposed January 2020.

Three years later the US is still under a Covid emergency despite Joe Biden claiming the pandemic is over.

CNBC reported:

The Biden administration has extended the Covid-19 public health emergency until April as a highly transmissible omicron subvariant stokes concern that the U.S. may face another wave of hospitalizations from the disease this winter.

“The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency remains in effect, and as HHS committed to earlier, we will provide a 60-day notice to states before any possible termination or expiration,” a spokesperson for the Health and Human Services Department said.

The U.S. has renewed the Covid public health emergency every 90 days since the Trump administration first issued the declaration in January 2020.

The emergency declaration has had a vast impact on the U.S. health-care system over the past three years. It has protected public health insurance coverage for millions, provided hospitals with greater flexibility to respond to patient surges and expanded telehealth.

In September Joe Biden declared the Covid pandemic is over in a sit-down interview with “60 Minutes.”

“The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s – but the pandemic is over,” Biden said to Scott Pelley.
