President Biden took a decision for the virus but is it the right one?

WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 21: U.S. President Joe Biden speaks about the omicron variant of the coronavirus in the State Dining Room of the White House, December 21, 2021 in Washington, DC. As the omicron variant fuels a new wave of COVID-19 infections, Biden announced plans that will expand testing sites across the country, distribute millions of free at-home tests and boost federal resources to hospitals in need.

In order to stop the likely new outbreak of the Omicron variant, U.S. President Joe Biden has put forward new measures that will include the free distribution of self-tests and the allocation of federal resources to overburdened hospitals. The new White House plan, which still relies on vaccination, carefully avoids new restrictions.
 
President Biden gave his address Tuesday in a festive setting, but the subject matter was much less so. With Christmas and family gatherings just four days away, Joe Biden once again unveiled a strategy to win the fight against a deadly adversary that continues to claim lives.
 
“We should all be concerned about Omicron, but not panicked,” he said in a 20-minute speech from the White House, in which he said he understood the fatigue of American citizens.
 
The White House had revealed, Joe Biden’s plan includes the distribution of 500 million free self-tests starting in January, which will be delivered at home to Americans who request them on a website.
 
President Biden, who announced a “war strategy” against COVID-19 at the beginning of his term in January, was comforting. Although the situation is critical, the country has the tools to get through the crisis, he said.

Despite the sharp increase in cases, the context is not the same as at the beginning of the crisis, he said.

“Know that it’s not like March 2020. 200 million Americans are adequately vaccinated. We are prepared. We know more [about COVID-19]. We just need to stay focused [on our goal].”

– A quote from Joe Biden, President of the United States
 
President Biden also announced increased federal assistance to hospitals. The Biden administration will mobilize 1,000 military doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in January and February to assist overwhelmed medical staff at hospitals across the country.

In addition, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will help hospitals increase their capacity.

The Biden administration also plans to strengthen the nation’s immunization capacity by deploying hundreds of federal vaccinators and establishing new immunization centers, some of which will open this week in New York City.
 
President Biden renewed – once again – his plea for vaccination and devoted a large part of his speech to it.
 
“400,000 Americans died from COVID this year, and almost all of them were not vaccinated”, Biden said.
 
At the beginning of the pandemic, the Democratic candidate, at the time, blasted Donald Trump and his refusal to contain the country while the previous Biden was for the lockdown.

During his speech, last Tuesday, he favoured PCR tests instead of containment, he made this decision probably under pressure from the economic circles and that the economic reality took precedence over the ideology of the moment. It is easier to be a candidate than to be a president at the White House.
