President Joe Biden has vowed not to lock down the US over Omicron. (We will see how long that lasts)
Instead, he is using mass testing and deploying the military to deal with Omicron.
To this point, no evidence exists that hospitals will become overcrowded with Omicron so the military being deployed may end up being unneeded.
With mass testing, you are ensuring that case numbers will rise.
The Biden administration purchased half a billion of these tests for those at home, which can be requested online.
President Biden is set to address the public Tuesday and lay out his plans to respond to the latest COVID “emergency” not with lockdowns and new restrictions, but with plans to get more COVID tests into the hands of the public.
Instead, he will announce a sweeping plan to deploy 1,000 military medical professionals to help at overburdened hospitals, setting up new federal testing sites, deploying hundreds of federal vaccinators and buying 500MM rapid tests to distribute free to the public.
According to the NYT, which published the news promptly at 0500ET, the measures were outlined to reporters Monday night by two senior administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, likely under the conditions of an embargo – news business jargon for when a story is leaked with the explicit agreement that reporters will wait until a given time to publish.
The 500MM tests that the administration intends to purchase will not be available until January, adding that the federal government intends to create a website where people can request that tests be sent to their homes, free of charge. It was not immediately clear where the tests would come from.
To those who support these measures–ask yourself why this administration dropped the ball on it:
Jen Psaki scoffed at this on December 6th. This is an idea they could’ve done many months ago but instead rejected as recently as this month and only did reactively as Omicron spreads.https://t.co/7WxDRNwn1k https://t.co/fZNEgyDNdb pic.twitter.com/VgPLbFTrtw
