Yesterday Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the pandemic phase of Covid-19 is over in the U.S., not that this will make Michigan Gov. Whitmer put away her Dr. Fauci pillow:

United States is ‘out of the pandemic phase,’ Fauci says https://t.co/1DKtrFKc5W

Fauci made those comments on PBS yesterday:
PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff pressed the White House chief medical adviser Tuesday on the state of the virus in the US, particularly as many Americans prepare to receive their second booster shots and mask requirements are lifted across the country.
“Here we are. It’s the end of April. It’s the spring of 2022. How close are we to the end of the pandemic?” Woodruff asked.
“We are certainly, right now, in this country out of the pandemic phase,” Fauci replied. “Namely, we don’t have 900,000 new infections a day and tens and tens and tens of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths. We are at a low level right now.”
“So, if you’re saying, are we out of the pandemic phase in this country, we are,” he added.
It doesn’t appear that Biden press secretary Jen Psaki got that memo:

Nice of Psaki to remind us that Biden failed to live up to his promise to “shut down the virus,” but that still doesn’t line up with what Fauci said yesterday.
won't be over until the 2024 presidential election

Translation— we can’t let you make independent decisions on how you want to live!

It is an agenda. If we don’t stop them, the “crisis” will last forever! https://t.co/Qmlv9oCEdo

The Biden administration will keep saying the pandemic is not over because they don’t want it to be.
