That makes Biden people very nervous…..
Republicans in Congress do NOT want to spend much more money to support the countries efforts to deal with the Covid strains that are outfoxing vaccine manufacture’s….
Up to now?
Congress and the President have been on the same page on the virus…
But it seems that Republicans in Congress believe that there should be a ‘ALL CLEAR’ approach to dealing with covid virus, which IS mutating by the month’s to stay alive….
The Biden admin believes that when people go back inside for the winter?
The infection numbers will increase more then they are now….
It would appear that the covid virus is here to stay….
The White House is stepping up its warnings about a coronavirus surge this fall and winter, and is making contingency plans for how it will provide vaccines to the American public if Congress does not allocate more money for the Covid-19 response, according to a senior administration official.
With prospects for a fresh round of emergency coronavirus aid appearing shaky on Capitol Hill, administration officials met this week with key senators — including two leading Republicans — to press their case. Democrats have been contemplating wrapping Covid aid into another emergency package for Ukraine, but it was unclear whether they will do so.
The White House has been asking Congress for $22.5 billion in emergency aid to continue responding to the pandemic, but Republicans have insisted on a much lower number — $10 billion — and have stripped $5 billion in global aid from the request. Republicans are also insisting that the Biden administration suspend its plans to lift a public health order known as Title 42, which authorities have used to deport asylum-seekers during the pandemic.
The Biden administration is preparing for the possibility that 100 million Americans — roughly 30 percent of the population — will get infected with the coronavirus this fall and winter, according to the administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity….
A report last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 60 percent of Americans, including 75 percent of children, had been infected with the coronavirus by February, and that the Omicron variant was responsible for much of the toll.
The official predicted the next coronavirus wave in the United States would begin this summer in the South, with a significant number of infections as people move indoors to escape the heat. In the fall, it would begin to spread across the rest of the country, particularly the north, although the spike in cases would not be as steep.
The 100 million figure is bound to be way to high…
