President Joe Biden declared the COVID-19 pandemic to be over during the latest episode of 60 Minutes with Scott Pelley. The announcement comes over two years into the pandemic which has killed more than 1 million Americans.

“The pandemic is over,” Biden responded. “We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it …but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.”

Biden’s comments come one week after Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, said that the end of the pandemic was “in sight.”

“Last week, the number of weekly reported deaths from Covid-19 was the lowest since March 2020,” Ghebreyesus said. “We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic. We’re not there yet, but the end is in sight.”

Over the last two weeks, there were around 65,000 new COVID-19 cases reported each day, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Approxiemently 400 people are dying every day from the virus.
