100 Million Americans Expected To Be Infected With COVID By This Winter

With no mask requirements anywhere, no real mitigation efforts, and no plans or leadership from government, we’re eternally fucked. Via CNN:

The Biden administration is issuing a new warning that the US could potentially see 100 million Covid-19 infections this fall and winter, as officials publicly stress the need for more funding from Congress to prepare the nation.

The projection of 100 million potential infections is an estimate based on a range of outside models that are being closely tracked by the administration and would include both the fall and winter, a senior administration official told CNN. Officials say this estimate is based on an underlying assumption of no additional resources or extra mitigation measures being taken, including new Covid-19 funding from Congress, or dramatic new variants.

The White House is sharing these estimates as officials renew their push to get Congress to approve additional funding to combat the virus and as the nation approaches a coronavirus death toll of 1 million. Officials have said the White House will commemorate the moment when the US surpasses 1 million deaths from Covid-19.

Uhh, we passed 1,000,000 deaths weeks ago. A good reminder that they have absolutely no idea what’s going on.

What doesn’t make any sense is that about 2/3 of states aren’t even reporting daily infections anymore, so how they plan on keeping track of 100 million people later this year is anyone’s guess. Maybe they’ll continue to hide the real number of cases until after the midterm elections? Today, for example, just four states reported their daily cases, for a laughably false nationwide total of just 15,584 cases. Multiply that by at least 10 for the real number.
