The official in charge of President Biden’s coronavirus response team expressed optimism on Friday about the future of the pandemic, saying the nation is “moving toward a time when Covid won’t disrupt our daily lives, where Covid won’t be a constant crisis but something we protect against and treat.”
The official, Jeffrey D. Zients, made the remark at a White House news conference as the national coronavirus caseload was on a slight downward trajectory, largely because of declines in major cities in the hard-hit Northeast. That trend also prompted Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to sound an upbeat note.
“We are starting to see steep declines in areas that were first peaking, so areas of the northeast — New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut — are really starting to come down,” Dr. Walensky said at the same briefing, calling it “an optimistic trend.”
