Once again the White House is walking back something President Biden said. This time the White House and Dr. Fauci are contradicting Biden's declaration the COVID "pandemic is over."
During an interview with 60 Minutes, Biden made it clear the pandemic is over.
"The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lotta work on it," Biden said. "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."

Well, Dr. Fauci, who happens to be the chief medical adviser of the Biden administration, said that the United States is in no position to make a statement as Biden did.
"Now, for sure the intensity of the outbreak now — even though it is, I believe, unacceptably high, where we’re having 400 deaths per day – when you compare it to the fulminant stages we’ve experienced over the past year or so where we used to have 800,000 to 900,000 cases per day and over 3,000 deaths per day, we are much better off now," Fauci said.
"But we are not where we need to be if we’re going to be able to, quote, 'live with the virus' because we know we’re not going to eradicate it," he added.
"[T]he combination of the evolution of variants as well as the seasonal aspects that as we get into this coming late fall and winter, it is likely that we will see another variant emerge," Fauci predicted.
Of course Karine Jean-Pierre did her best to play both sides of the fence. She said that President Biden was "very clear" that COVID "remains a problem."
"The president said, and he was very clear in his '60 Minutes' interview, that COVID remains a problem, and we're fighting it," she said.
