Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Without Mitigation, Coronavirus Could Infect 100 Million+ Across U.S. This Fall/Winter

HeadlineMay 09, 2022

The Biden administration is warning a new wave of COVID-19 could infect 100 million people in the United States this fall and winter. The White House issued the warning as it called on Congress to approve $22.5 billion in new pandemic funding. Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House COVID-19 response coordinator, spoke to ABC.

Dr. Ashish Jha: “We’re looking at a range of models, both internal and external models, and what they’re predicting is that if we don’t get ahead of this thing, we’re going to have a lot of waning immunity. This virus continues to evolve, and we may see a pretty sizable wave of infections, hospitalizations and deaths this fall and winter.”
