In a 60 Minutes interview on Sept. 18, 2022, President Joe Biden said, "We're still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over." Some agreed and some disagreed with the President, depending on how they defined "over." Common measures that determine if a pandemic is over are cases and hospitalizations, availability of treatments and vaccines, and whether policy is being created to address the disease. As of Sept. 14, 2022, daily cases in a 7-day period averaged almost 60,000; daily hospitalizations in a 7-day period averaged over 4,500. There are 8 authorized treatments and 4 authorized primary series vaccines for COVID-19. Many policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been revoked, such as mask mandates and travel restrictions.
