Biden admits Covid spike ‘happened almost overnight’

President Joe Biden confessed on Tuesday that he was as surprised at the sudden spike in COVID-19 cases, saying it “happened almost overnight” as the nation seeks to respond to the growth of the Omicron variant.

“Covid is spreading so rapidly, you notice, it just happened almost overnight, just in the last month,” Biden said.

“I don’t think anybody anticipated that this was going to be as rapidly spreading as it did,” he added.

The president announced on Tuesday that the nation is purchasing a half-billion rapid COVID-19 tests for Americans to use for at-home testing to respond.

Not everyone was convinced. Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce noted, “It’s not exactly reassuring that Biden is coughing and hacking his way through the speech. As he lectures us about what we need to do to protect ourselves from Covid. This entire situation is unserious and untenable”

The nation’s concern with the virus continues, but many also have growing concerns about both the plans and the health of the president.
