Amid the midterm election primaries and a push for another $22.5 billion in emergency aid to pay for a fourth round of shots as well as treatments and tests, top Biden administration officials warned Wednesday that one-third of Americans live in communities experiencing rising levels of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
The officials, urging people to resume personal protection measures such as masks, said there are nearly 100,000 new infections a day ahead of the Memorial Day weekend of large gatherings and travel, the Washington Post reported.
The fall season, in which the midterm elections will take place, the White House previously warned, could see up to 100 million new COVID infections.
In December, epidemiologists and medical scientists such as Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone said the highly contagious yet mild omicron variant could serve as a natural vaccine that could help shift the pandemic to endemic status.
And CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has acknowledged that 95% of Americans have protection due to vaccination and natural immunity. Further the 100 million figure cited by the administration is based on models, which haven’t proved to be reliable over the pandemic’s two and a half years.
Earlier this month, more than 17,000 physicians and medical scientists from around the world signed a declaration calling on nations to lift health emergency declarations, restore scientific integrity and address “crimes against humanity.”
“We declare the state of national emergency, which facilitates corruption and extends the pandemic, should be immediately terminated.”
They also argue masks “have never been effective protection against an airborne respiratory virus in the community setting” and call for funding and research to address “vaccination damage, death and suffering.”
An Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index in April found that fewer than one in 10 Americans now describe COVID-19 as a crisis.
Axios said the findings indicate “the public’s growing desire to be done with mask mandates and other restrictions,” raising “significant challenges for public health officials in managing new surges, and could create real political headwinds ahead of the midterms.”
The survey found that Democrats were five times as likely as Republicans to say COVID-19 is a crisis, 16% to 3%.
And Republicans were 10 times as likely as Democrats to say COVID-19 is not a problem, 31% to 3%.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
