Better late than never: Biden ends COVID emergency in the US

US president Joe Biden officially put an end to the National Corona emergency that has been in effect in the country for three years on Monday. The United States is the hardest hit by the coronavirus of all countries, with more than a million deaths.

The White House reported in a press release that the president on Monday signed a law that had previously been passed by Congress that ends the national emergency. That means no more government funding will be available for Covid tests, free vaccines and other emergency measures.

The US government says it will continue to work on a next generation of vaccines and other measures to combat future variants of the virus. The government has allocated at least $ 5 billion in funds for the ‘NextGen’project. The fund aims to “advance scientific progress”and” stay one step ahead of the rapidly evolving virus that causes Covid-19″.

,,Although our vaccines are still highly effective in preventing serious illness and death, they are less able to prevent the virus from spreading,’ said a spokesman for the US health service HHS. ,,It therefore remains a challenge for our healthcare to find solutions to new variants and the loss of immunity over time.’’
