Is the pandemic really over?

Bernadette Boden-Albala, MPH, DrPH, a social epidemiologist and [director &] founding dean of the public health program at University of California, Irvine, said she understands Biden’s attempt to reassure the American people who have been struggling for more than two years, but the reality is that we are still in a pandemic. … “We must be careful about saying it is over,” she said. “We still need resources to continue vaccination and to address vaccine hesitancy.”
