R. Gelfenstein – The U.S. government still designates COVID-19 as a public health emergency, and the World Health Organization says it remains a public health emergency of international concern. However, the president's comments follow otherhopeful critics from world health leaders.

Joe Biden said he believes the Covid-19 pandemic is "over." He did so during an appearance on CBS's 60 Minutes, but acknowledged that the United States still had a "problem" with the virus.

"The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with covid. We're still working it. But the pandemic is over," Biden said.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, told a news conference last week that the end of the COVID-19 pandemic is "in sight" and that the world has never been in a better position. to end the covid-19 pandemic.

"Last week, the number of weekly deaths reported from Covid-19 was the lowest since March 2020," Ghebreyesus said. "We've never been in a better position to end the pandemic, we're not there yet, but the end is near.

The agency says some people, including the elderly, immunocompromised, with certain disabilities or pre-existing health conditions, are at an increased risk of becoming seriously ill and may need to take extra precautions.

For people hospitalized with COVID-19, the risk of dying was minimal during the wave of omicrons, according to a study published last week by the CDC. The researchers suggest that several factors contributed to the improvement in mortality risk: high levels of immunity from both vaccination and previous infection, advances in treatments, and properties of omcron subvariants that made them less likely to cause disease.
