During a TV interview on Sunday (September 18) night, President Joe Biden declared that the COVID-19 pandemic is "over".
"The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lot of work on it. It's -- but the pandemic is over," Biden told Scott Pelley.
Despite Biden's statement, the U.S. still considers COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency and not everybody is ready to declare the pandemic over.
"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."
