President Joe Biden confirmed Friday that Americans should expect more coronavirus-related restrictions, as the Delta variant of the virus continues to spread.
Biden spoke about more restrictions on Americans after CBS reporter Weijia Jiang asked him 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 also signaled optimism that more Americans were getting vaccinated, citing “almost a million” people getting their shots on Thursday.
“So I am hopeful that people are beginning to realize how essential it is to move,” he said.
The White House continues to fail to explain to Americans why fully vaccinated people in some areas have to wear masks, leaving future restrictions entirely up to public health officials.
