Guess the Biden administration has received the memo, loud and clear, about getting the public hyped up over COVID, once again.
First, murmurs about mask recommendations began surfacing once again, in spite of even Fauci himself admitting that masks, especially cloth masks, don’t work.
Second, new COVID vaccines have suddenly surfaced in the news, benefitting from emergency use authorization approvals from feckless federal agencies.
Don’t forget quadruple-vaccinated Jill Biden suddenly contracting COVID while Biden himself remained unscathed, at least as far as media commentary goes.
Now, Biden has decided to plow over half a billion dollars into “free” COVID tests for the American public.
“The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it is providing $600 million in funding to produce new at-home COVID-19 tests and is restarting a website allowing Americans to again order up to four free tests per household – aiming to prevent possible shortages during a rise in coronavirus cases that has typically come during colder months,” the Connecticut Post reported.
Well then. What a total waste of $600M. What’s even scarier is that Biden is simultaneously pledging forty times as much to Ukraine at the same time.
Biden’s henchmen are also already out and about, with the HHS prattling away about how great all the free COVID tests are.
Dawn O’Connell, who serves as the assistant secretary for preparedness and response at HHS, acknowledged people may be tired of the nonstop COVID talk … and she also effectively said that they can just deal with it.
“Whether or not people are done with it, we know the virus is there, we know that it’s circulating. We know, if past is prologue, it’ll circulate to a higher degree and spread, and cases will go up in the fall and winter seasons … Anticipating that that would be true again, or something similar, we want to make sure the American people have these tools,” O’Connell boomed.
“If past is prologue, it’ll circulate to a higher degree and spread.” What a Mary Poppins this one is!
The HHS Secretary also suggested that COVID may drag on well beyond the “fall and winter seasons.”
“We reserve the right to keep [the website] open even longer if we’re starting to see an increase in cases,” she intoned.
Translation: COVID is not going anywhere, anytime soon, until after the 2024 election.
“If there is a demand for these tests, we want to make sure that they’re made available to the American people for free in this way … But, at this point, our focus is getting through the holidays and making sure folks can take a test if they’re going to see Grandma for Thanksgiving,” O’Connell added cheerily.
Gee, thanks! How kind of the Biden regime to care about whether or not Americans can see their grandparents over the holidays.
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra also was sure to serve as a cheerleader for the $600M boondoggle as well.
“The Biden-Harris Administration, in partnership with domestic manufacturers, has made great strides in addressing vulnerabilities in the U.S. supply chain by reducing our reliance on overseas manufacturing … These critical investments will strengthen our nation’s production levels of domestic at-home COVID-19 rapid tests and help mitigate the spread of the virus,” Becerra brayed.
It will be very interesting to observe how “the virus” has spread in 2024 …
