from 21st Century Wire:
Public health mavens and Big Pharma chiefs were furious last night after President Joe Biden let slip during a TV segment with ’60 Minutes,’ declaring that ‘The pandemic is over.”
The President’s off-handed comments appeared to be off-script, and have threatened to throw a multi billion dollar crisis-economy grift into disarray, as pharmaceutical executives, the CDC, and the gatekeepers at Anthony Fauci’s corrupt NIH – are now all worried about securing the next tranche of federal money for new and exotic medications, useless tests, experimental vaccines, and other lucrative COVID-related projects.

A desperate World Health Organization (WHO) was also not happy by Biden’s impromptu remarks. Only last Wednesday, the WHO warned that the pandemic was not over and that ‘important work remains to combat the virus’ around the world. “We are not there yet but the end is in sight,” said ‘Dr’ Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the controversial director general of the WHO. “We can see the finish line, but now is the worst time to stop running.”
Another glorious misstep, by the all-time king of gaffes…
Washington Post reports…
President Biden declared the coronavirus pandemic “over,” in apparently off-the-cuff remarks that reflect the growing sentiment that the threat of the virus has receded, even as hundreds of Americans continue to die of covid each day.
“We still have a problem with covid,” Biden said on “60 Minutes,” which aired Sunday night. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it … but the pandemic is over.”
Biden made the remarks Wednesday during an interview at the auto show in Detroit, referencing the crowds at the event. The annual auto show had not been held since 2019.
“If you notice, no one’s wearing masks,” Biden said to CBS News reporter Scott Pelley. “Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.”
While Biden’s comments were extemporaneous, they may complicate his administration’s so far unsuccessful efforts to secure additional funding from Congress for more coronavirus vaccines and treatments and to take other steps intended to combat the virus.
