On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced yet another member of his COVID task force, this time by introducing a new “COVID Czar” for the nation to listen to.
Specifically, Biden has declared that Dr. Ashish Jha will be serving as the new coronavirus response coordinator for the White House.
Jha, who has long served as the Dean of Brown University, an Ivy League institution, will serve as the replacement for Jeffrey Zients, who intends to leave his current public post in order to return to a quiet, more private life, per official statements.
Biden demonstrated a high level of enthusiasm over his new appointee, proclaiming that Jha has long served as “one of the leading public health experts in America.”
The president also argued that Jha has become “a well known figure to many Americans,” ostensibly due to “his wise and calming public presence.”
Biden also warned that the United States is entering into “a new moment” with regards to the pandemic, which apparently warrants the continued fixation on the Biden administration’s “National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.”
These warnings come amid Biden’s claims that the United States is also returning to a sense of normalcy more than two years after the pandemic began to grip the nation.
“Americans are safely moving back to more normal routines,” Biden brayed, chiefly from “[utilizing] effective new tools … to reduce severe COVID-19 cases and make workplaces and schools safer.”
Nonetheless, “our work in combating [the pandemic] is far from done,” Biden added ominously.
