Biden Declares That, the Pandemic Is 'Over'.

President Joe Biden made the statements during a wide-ranging interview on CBS's '60 Minutes' that aired on Sunday.

The pandemic is over.

We still have a problem with Covid.

We’re still doing a lot of work on it.

It’s – but the pandemic is over, President Joe Biden, via CNN.

More than one million people have died due to COVID-19 in the U.S. alone.

U.S. and international health organizations still consider COVID a Public Health Emergency.

Biden's statement went further than the recent statement of the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Last week, the number of weekly reported deaths from Covid-19 was the lowest since March 2020, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General, via CNN.

We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic.

We’re not there yet, but the end is in sight, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General, via CNN.

Biden was also asked about his intentions for running for a second term as president in 2024.

Look, my intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again.

But it’s just an intention.

, President Joe Biden, via CNN.

But is it a firm decision that I run again?

That remains to be seen, President Joe Biden, via CNN.

Regarding the documents confiscated from former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, Biden expressed a hands-off approach.

.

I have not asked for the specifics of those documents because I don’t want to get myself in the middle of whether or not the Justice Department should move or not move on certain actions they could take, President Joe Biden, via CNN.

When asked if the U.S. military would defend Taiwan in the event of an invasion by forces from China, Biden's reply was succinct.

Yes, President Joe Biden, via CNN
