Biden, CDC director warn of virus rebound if nation lets up


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky are making impassioned pleas to Americans not to let their guard down in the fight against COVID-19.

Walensky warns of a potential “fourth surge” of the virus and spoke of a “recurring feeling ... of impending doom.”

Biden says the virus will get worse, not better “if we let our guard down now.” He says that "people are letting up on precautions, which is a very bad thing.”

In other remarks Monday, Walensky spoke of hope but added, "Right now, I’m scared.”
