Last August, I projected that based on our experiences with a coronavirus in the late 1800’s, we would be experiencing continued waves of covid infections that essentially would generate enough herd immunity that the pathogen would join the array of other seasonal respiratory viruses humans routinely contract.
No amount of masking, vaccination, or social distancing will eliminate the coronavirus. Yet Team Biden persisted in its “war on covid”.

Biden instituted a 6-prong plan involving vaccine mandates, masking, and insults to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The plan failed spectacularly…just as I (and others) predicted.
Shockingly, US states with mask mandates are currently reporting significantly higher COVID case rates than those without mask mandates
It’s remarkable how often politicians and experts will say it’s “too soon” to lift mask mandates when they literally never work pic.twitter.com/8vR1LjG2K1

There’s never been a remotely defensible case for vaccine passports, but it’s even more absurd when considering the 10 most vaccinated US states have reported higher case rates than the bottom 10 during the fall & winter surge
As always, politicians & The Experts™ are lying pic.twitter.com/khZeyY4eYy

Now it appears that Biden is surrendering to reality…and in his War on Covid.
Members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team Wednesday said they are cautiously optimistic about the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in the United States and the White House is preparing for the non-crisis stage of the pandemic.
During a virtual briefing Wednesday, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky said the daily average of new COVID-19 cases was down 40% over the past seven days. She said hospitalizations dropped by 28% and deaths were down 9.5%.
Walensky told reporters the CDC was gathering community health data and said its public health guidance regarding wearing masks “would be updated soon.” Last week, Walensky said COVID-19 hospitalization and death numbers weren’t yet low enough to warrant altering recommendations.
She said most states and municipalities announcing plans to ease their restrictions are doing so in phases, with most saying they will begin lifting their mask rules by the end of February or early March. Walensky said she anticipates possible CDC guideline updates to “intersect.”
Meanwhile, White House COVID-19 Response Team Coordinator Jeff Zients said the White House has so far distributed 200 million free individual at-home COVID-19 tests around the country. He said the White House has another 800 million on hand for U.S. residents who want them.
I anticipate Biden will decide to declare victory over covid in that address, in hopes of curing his rather sick poll numbers.
President Biden’s approval rating in a key average of major polls dropped below 40 percent this week, the first time that had happened since he took office.
The Real Clear Politics average of all recent national surveys found Wednesday that 39.8 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s performance in office, while 54.4 percent disapproved.
