COVID Public Health Emergency Has Been Extended

October 16, 2022

Last week, the Biden Administration extended the COVID public health emergency (PHE) by another 90 days. While the numbers of COVID cases continues to go down, still the U.S> is still seeing more than 300 people dying a day from the PHE.

“If you are up to date with your vaccines and if you get treated, if you have a breakthrough infection, your risk of dying from COVID is now close to zero,” White House COVID-19 response coordinator Ashish Jha said Tuesday.

“We know there’s more work to do with real challenges ahead of us as we head into the fall and winter and the holidays. We’re doing everything we can as an administration to stay ahead of this virus. But if we all do our part — not just us in the administration, but Congress and the American people — I remain incredibly confident we can manage this virus for this fall and winter with less suffering and we can have a safe and healthy holiday season ahead,” Jha said.
