Still, he and Centers for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky warned Americans not to grow complacent.

“We’re in the life-and-death race for the virus that is spreading quickly. With cases rising again, new variants are spreading and, sadly, some of the reckless behavior we’ve seen on television over the past few weeks means that more new cases are to come in the weeks ahead,” the president said in brief remarks from the White House.

Walensky’s warning was more dire, as cases begin to rise, despite vaccination efforts. 

“I’m going to pause here, I’m going to lose the script and I’m going to reflect on the recurring feeling I have of impending doom,” Walensky said, appearing to grow emotional. “We have so much to look forward to. So much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope. But right now I’m scared.”
