Biden and the White House have informed Congress that the President intends to end the COVID-19 National Emergency and the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on May 11. This comes after most of the world has returned to normal almost three years after these emergencies were first declared. This move will restructure the federal response to COVID, though it will move the virus to an endemic threat that agencies will be able to handle through their otherwise normal channels and responsibilities.

This comes after House Republicans sought to bring the National Emergencies to an abrupt end, as they announced they would be looking into the federal government’s response to COVID-19.

What does this mean?
According to AP, many “lawmakers have already ended elements of the emergencies that kept millions of Americans insured during the pandemic. Combined with the drawdown of most federal COVID-19 relief money, it would also shift the development of vaccines and treatments away from the direct management of the federal government.”

  • The COVID vaccines will raise in price, according to AP, after the government stops buying them. Pfizer even said they would charge as much as $130 per dose.
  • The free at-home COVID tests will also come to an end.
  • While the Biden administration was contemplating ending the emergencies last year, they were worried about a “winter surge” which held it off then.
  • AP claims the administration plans to use the next three months to transition out of the emergencies.

Even Trump was fooled ..
The worst mistake he ever made
Was to rush the pharmisuicidical
Companys to rush and make a vaccine
He trusted Faucci , and even Faucci was a fool.. the only ones who weren’t, was Pfiser and others….they made Billions off
Unfortunate thing for all the people of the world…!!

I am not surprised. With all the evidence now coming out that we the people were lied to AND tied to that lie to conform to the politicians wishes it’s certainly no surprise that sleepy joe woke and found he needed to do something if he’s going to run again. Wonder if he still has room in the basement for his next campaign.

They have a photo of Biden on here that makes it look like he is thinking about something…Pudding or ice cream maybe?, or need a diaper change. Our country has been made the joke of the world. We might not be able to come back from this disaster.
