SURPRISE! Biden Administration To Extend COVID Health Emergency Through April 2023

Joe Biden is now going to extend the Covid health emergency through April of 2023.

You may recall that during the campaign, Biden said he would shut down the virus. How’s that going?

Also recall that a few months ago, Biden told a reporter that the pandemic was over.

So what’s up with this?

The Biden administration is set to extend the COVID-19 public health emergency through at least next April.

The public health emergency, which was set to expire on Jan. 11, will remain in place through the first quarter of 2022 to allow the government more time to offload responsibility for COVID-19 vaccines, tests, antiviral treatment, and other COVID-19 pharmaceuticals to the private sector — all have been provided free by the government during the health emergency, a Biden administration official told Reuters.

The emergency declaration was initially declared in January 2020 and has been extended in increments of 90 days since.

The Biden administration signaled earlier this year that it would begin figuring out how to transfer key tasks to the private sector, meeting with drugmakers, pharmacies, and other stakeholders in the healthcare industry in late August to discuss how to begin the commercialization process, though the transition has been slow to get off its feet.

Despite the extension, the administration is running on a time crunch to begin the process as federal COVID-19 funding runs low. Dawn O’Connell, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response, said in August that the administration anticipates running out of runs to purchase or distribute vaccines by “as early as January 2023.”

Is this really about elections?

Isn’t it time to end this madness?
