During a recent interview, Joe Biden declared the COVID-19 pandemic has ended, which sparked criticism from some critics for his administration's continued use of emergency measures.


During an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes," Biden said: "The pandemic is over."


“We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape,” the Democrat added.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Biden spoke at the Detroit Auto Show for the first time.


A pandemic is declared by the World Health Organization, an organization under the United Nations. Pandemic is not over, according to the agency.


As of late 2021 and early 2022, metrics for COVID-19 have plunged throughout the world. In addition, COVID-19 variants that are less virulent than earlier strains are not as well protected by vaccines and prior infection.
