The Biden administration has issued a new warning that the United States might have 100 million Covid-19 infections this fall and winter, as officials openly highlight the need for additional cash from Congress to prepare the country. According to a senior administration official, the estimate of 100 million potential infections is based on a variety of outside models that are being constantly monitored by the administration and would include both the fall and winter seasons. Officials claim that this estimate is predicated on the assumption that no additional resources or mitigation measures, such as new Covid-19 financing from Congress or radical new variations, will be implemented.
The funny thing is, President Biden has been very active on Twitter, bragging about how jobs are at its highest, but has not addressed these issues with covid, or he has not taking the time to address the inflation that we are facing today. As you know, this would be a catastrophe if we are struggling to pay our bills, buy food, get affordable gas, and more along with dealing with high covid infections.
from the Congress The White House is releasing these figures as officials renew their efforts to persuade Congress to authorize additional cash to tackle the illness as the country approaches a one-million-strong coronavirus death toll. Officials said the White House will mark the occasion when the United States reaches 1 million fatalities from Covid-19. Even as it seeks a return to “normal” with many pandemic-era limitations lifted, the Biden administration has been warning for weeks that further funds is needed to sustain the government Covid-19 responses, or startling new variations.
According to CNN, the Biden administration proposed $22.5 billion in supplementary Covid-19 relief funding in March as part of a major government budget measure, but it was removed. This request includes money for testing, treatments, medicines, and epidemic prevention. Negotiators were able to reach an agreement on a $10 billion package that was scaled back, but Congress left Washington in April without passing that bipartisan bill due to a disagreement over the Title 42 immigration policy, a pandemic-era rule that allowed migrants to be returned to their home countries immediately if there was a public health emergency.
