Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden on Thursday announced his administration would make “high-quality masks” available to Americans for free, as the US struggles to contain the new surge of the Omicron variant and hospitalizations from Covid-19 reach new highs.
The President also announced his administration would purchase an additional 500 million Covid-19 tests — on top of the 500 million tests he previously announced — and said the website where Americans can go to get the free tests shipped to them will be rolled out next week.
“I know we all wish could finally be done with wearing masks, I get it, but they are a really important tool to stop the spread, especially of the highly transmissible Omicron variant,” Biden said in remarks from the White House.
He noted that for some Americans, “a mask is not always affordable or convenient to get,” and that his administration would announce more details about how it will distribute free masks next week.
I wonder if the administration will get it done before the pandemic is declared over.

In other words, once that Omygodicron turns out to be a common cold
with mild flu symptoms we will be told to wear (expensive) masks and
take idiotic further tests as well as take more booster shots, we will be
safe???? This becomes more and more of a disaster for this flailing
administration. But let’s be sure the next threat to install fear into
our people is already on the way.
