POTUS Will Address Nation On Tuesday About Rising Omicron Cases

President Joe Biden initially promised no new official COVID19 lockdowns this winter, but it’s currently unclear if he’ll have to go back on that promise as the Omicron variant bears down on a nation already ravaged by the Delta variant. The country has wearily adapted to other setbacks before, and now President Biden is expected to go beyond his already unveiled “winter plan” with additional measures while “issuing a stark warning of what the next few months will look like for Americans that choose to remain unvaccinated,” a White House official told NBC News on Saturday.

The President will deliver a speech Tuesday to address the Omicron variant and unveil new steps the Biden administration is taking to help communities in need of assistance. The news comes amid a rise in Covid-19 cases and pleas from federal health officials for people to get vaccinated.

The President has been receiving additional Covid briefings from his medical experts, and aides say he has told his team the message to the American public must be “direct” because of concerns that Omicron’s the more transmissible variant is expected to spread quickly, putting unvaccinated people at a higher risk while also posing a threat to those who have some level of inoculation.

It’s expected that President Biden will once again renew his plea for those who still haven’t gotten vaccinated or boosted to do so immediately.

Aides said the Biden administration is “prepared for the rising case levels” and that President Biden intends to explain how his team “will respond to this challenge” and other pressing issues during his national address.
