“The pandemic is over,” Biden replied to host Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes.

“We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s—but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. 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,” he added.
Though various claims from Biden’s interview on Sunday were walked back, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre specifically urged Americans to look at the context of the President’s “pandemic being over” claim.
“So, just to step back for a second,” Jean-Pierre said on MSNBC on Wednesday. “What we saw during that interview … when he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit Car Show … and he was looking around.”
Apparently Biden was so enthralled by the Detroit Car Show that he was incapable of discussing the global pandemic that has impacted American lives since he first took office.
