President Joe Biden on Increased Travel Restrictions Due to Omicron COVID-⁠19 Variant

Nantucket, MA...I was briefed by my chief medical advisor, Dr. Tony Fauci, and the members of our COVID response team, about the Omicron variant, which is spreading through Southern Africa. As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries. These new restrictions will take effect on November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.





For now, I have two important messages for the American people, and one for the world community.

First, for those Americans who are fully vaccinated against severe COVID illness – fortunately, for the vast majority of our adults — the best way to strengthen your protection is to get a booster shot, as soon as you are eligible. Boosters are approved for all adults over 18, six months past their vaccination and are available at 80,000 locations coast-to-coast. They are safe, free, and convenient. Get your booster shot now, so you can have this additional protection during the holiday season.

Second, for those not yet fully vaccinated: get vaccinated today. This includes both children and adults. America is leading the world in vaccinating children ages 5-11, and has been vaccinating teens for many months now – but we need more Americans in all age groups to get this life-saving protection. If you have not gotten vaccinated, or have not taken your children to get vaccinated, now is the time.

Finally, for the world community: the news about this new variant should make clearer than ever why this pandemic will not end until we have global vaccinations. The United States has already donated more vaccines to other countries than every other country combined. It is time for other countries to match America’s speed and generosity.

In addition, I call on the nations gathering next week for the World Trade Organization ministerial meeting to meet the U.S. challenge to waive intellectual property protections for COVID vaccines, so these vaccines can be manufactured globally. I endorsed this position in April; this news today reiterates the importance of moving on this quickly.

Americans keep supporting Democrats, who keep capitulating to conservatives.
The party will only change when Democrats realize their base won't support them.
Giving up on mainstream Democrats frees up money for more effective political work.

    “Voters believe the economy is bad, and no amount of stats can change their mind (at least in the short term).”

      “Currently, a sizable majority of American voters have decided that President Biden and his party are 1) horribly incompetent, 2) deeply divisive, and 3) controlled by the radical Left. In that order,” Anderson said. “Any one of these factors is a real problem for the Democrats. All three are deadly.

    This piece of sh*t President told President Trump that he was Xenophobic and a Racist because he restricted travel to China because of the Chinese virus and now Bumbling Biden is restricting travel to South Africa because of the same virus. Would that not make ass hole Biden Xenophobic and a Racist for doing the same thing or does that not apply to him because he is an Idiot Demorat? This is the problem with Sloppy Joe, he says one thing and does another but nothing applies to him or his stupid Administration.

Viruses are constantly mutating in an attempt to remain alive. That is a fact! Another fact is that the more a virus mutates, the weaker the virus gets. So Why is Dr Fauci not speaking to this or is he a mere over paid pawn for the Deep State? As a biochemist, this is a valid question and a question we should all be asking this administration and our local state & community officials.

    Oh my! Now Biden found out from the virology Dr that initially reported this Omnicrom??? variant {where did that name come from?}, they do not know yet if this is a delta or beta variant and thus far, symptoms are considerably mild relative to the original & current delta variant in this country right now. So New York City Democratic mayor has now shut down all elective surgeries out of an abundance of caution. This is not science, this is pure politics
