Biden Mourns 1 Million Covid Deaths in US

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Mourns 1 Million Covid Deaths in US” – below is their description.

Approximately a million people have died from Covid-19 in the US. The country now faces a new surge in BA.2 and BA.2.12.1; other variants are likely to follow. Yet Americans are now packing into restaurants, parties and exercise classes as if it’s 2019.

It’s easy to blame Covid fatigue, but that may not be the problem. People are confused, badly informed, and cynical for good reason — the public health establishment has let us down many times, underplaying the risk early, making rules that were geared as much for show as for our protection, and blaming us for their failures.
