Friday, President Biden confirms Americans should expect more restrictions related to coronavirus, as the Delta variant is spreading.
CBS reporter Weijia Jiang ask Biden if he expected more restrictions as the virus spreads across the country.
“In all probability,” he replied as he left the White House for a weekend trip to Camp David.
Biden touted that more Americans are getting vaccinated, citing “almost a million” people received their shot on Thursday.
“So I am hopeful that people are beginning to realize how essential it is to move,” he said.
Meanwhile, the White House has failed to explain why fully vaccinated people in certain areas are needing to mask up, and future restrictions are left entirely up to public health officials.
Biden struggled when presented the question while the majority of Americans have been vaccinated.
He also warned that coronavirus cases would continue to rise in the coming weeks.
“Our experts tell me that cases will go up further before they start to come back down,” he said.
Karine Jean-Pierre, Deputy Press Secretary, also failed to explain why the weekly briefing with health officials detailing the latest data on the spread of the virus was canceled.
She said reporters should be satisfied that they heard from Biden himself on Thursday.
“He gave a more than 30-minute speech,” Jean-Pierre argued, adding Biden was “a trusted voice” and “the leader of our country.”
