Biden’s claim that Covid pandemic is over sparks debate over future | Coronavirus | The Guardian

Joe Biden’s recent declaration that the Covid-19 pandemic was over was premature, according to several infectious disease experts, but there was not a consensus among them about whether the remarks will cause a significant change in Americans’ attitude towards the virus and lead to worse public health outcomes.

That’s partly because Biden was simply catching up to most of the US population, who see how much lower the case and death counts are than earlier in the pandemic, and as such, have stopped wearing masks in public and now gather regularly indoors, the experts said.

Still, an average of more than 400 people die every day due to Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
