“If people are vaccinated and wear their masks, there’s no need for lockdowns,” says puppet president.
Joe Biden announced his administration isn’t recommending lockdowns “for now” over the so-called Omicron variant, claiming the “new normal” will be “everyone” getting the COVID injection and the booster shot.
“Because we’re able to– if people are vaccinated and wear their masks, there’s no need for lockdowns,” Biden said.
When asked whether “intermittent travel restrictions” and “drops in the stock market” would become the “new normal” every time there’s a new COVID variant, Biden said the new normal will actually be universal vaccination.
“I expect the new normal to be, everyone ends up getting vaccinated and the booster shot, so we reduce the number of people who aren’t protected to such a low degree that we’re not seeing the spread of these viruses,” Biden said.
Biden called on Americans to resume wearing masks in indoor settings and have their children take the injection in response to the Omicron variant eventually reaching the U.S.
