As hundreds of Americans perish every day, Joe Biden claims that the COVID-19 pandemic is

United States: Even as the United States continues to grapple with the coronavirus infection that claims the lives of hundreds of Americans every day, US President Joe Biden claimed in an interview broadcast on Sunday that "the pandemic is over."

In an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes held outside the Detroit auto show on Wednesday, which was attended by thousands, Biden declared that "the pandemic is over."

"Covid is still a problem for us. We're still working very hard on it. The pandemic is over, though. No one is hiding themselves, if you notice. Everyone's in generally good health. So, I believe that is changing.

Since the beginning of Biden's tenure, when more than 3,000 Americans were dying from the Covid-19 pandemic every day, the toll has come down significantly due to better care, drugs and vaccinations, which are now more widely accessible.

However, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that Covid-19 still claims around 400 lives in the US every day.

After suffering from COVID-19 twice since July, Biden was quarantined at the White House for more than two weeks. His wife, Jill, contracted the virus in August. The mild cases, according to Biden, are evidence of the improvements in health care made during his administration.

Biden has asked Congress for an additional $22.4 billion in funding, to make up for the escalation in case of a potential fallout.
During the interview, Biden gave a stern warning to China and Russia and expressed hope for the recovery of the US economy.

However, he surprised many by thinking of contesting again in 2024.
Biden, who will turn 80 in November, told interviewer Scott Pele that he "intends" to run for office again.

But have you really decided that I should run again? That's still up in the air," he said.
Biden, who described himself as "a great honor of fate," said "it's too early."

Biden was upbeat when assessing the state of the world's largest economy.
He declared, "We are going to control inflation.
Biden's announcement that he would send troops to defend the autonomous island in the event of an attack from Beijing was another unexpected turning point in US policy toward Taiwan.

In another stern warning to the United States' biggest economic and geopolitical foe, Vice President Biden claimed to have warned President Xi Jinping not to militarily support Russia in its invasion of Ukraine.

He said he told Xi that US and other foreign investments in China would be hampered and that thinking otherwise would be "a big mistake".

Biden said he is optimistic despite his low approval rating and polls that indicate Democrats are likely to lose control of at least one chamber of Congress.

Biden said that "we hope we can have, as they say, a soft landing" while pointing out that jobs are booming and the economy is strong.

Asked if he's capable of physically and mentally demanding jobs at his age, Biden replied, "Look at me."

"The proof of pudding is in the food," as the saying goes, applies here.

When asked where he finds inspiration when things are tough, Biden referred to his late son beau as well as his parents' advice to "just get up."
With "a lot to give," Biden claimed.
