The United States could become a place where Covid-19 turns into a situation where we “learn to live with it,” according to a former member of President Biden’s coronavirus task force.
Speaking on NBCs Meet the press Today, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel vaccines, new treatments and other remedies that he claims will help make the coronavirus more manageable and akin to the flu. Emanuel’s comments reflect those of other government officials and medical staff who seem to be moving away from intimidation tactics in case burdens and in the direction of acknowledging that deaths are flat and that hospitalizations do not face a doomsday scenario.
“We believe that in 2022 we will reach an endemic phase and the plan is – or the proposal is – we need a strategic plan for what covers vaccines, to get more people vaccinated and the only way to do what we have been very clear about over time is mandates, ”said Emanuel.
He targeted the next three months as critical, “to be prepared when COVID is really just in the air, like RSV, another respiratory virus, like the flu, like adenovirus, all respiratory viruses. It stays here. We have to learn to live with it, ” he said.
The current explosion of omicron cases has prevented the United States from reaching the endemic phase. “If you have 1,500 people a day dying of this disease, it’s still a pandemic and omicron is spreading,” he said.
