Biden said on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that “we still have a problem with Covid,” adding: “We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over.”
The virus has killed more than 1 million people in the U.S., pummeled the economy, and disrupted school for millions of U.S. children.
The National Bureau of Economic Research reported last week that Covid continues to choke the labor supply. It is estimated that Covid illnesses have reduced the U.S. labor force by about a half-million people, about 0.2% of all adults.
