Biden says COVID-19 cases will go up before they come down

U.S. President Joe Biden said on Friday (August 6) that COVID-19 cases will go up before they come down and that the new Delta variant is taking a needless toll on the country.

“Cases are going to go up before they come back down,” Biden said in remarks at the White House. “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

The comments come on the heels of the Labor Department’s closely watched employment report that showed U.S. job growth powered ahead and the unemployment rate fell in July, quashing fears of a hiring slowdown and suggesting the economy began the second half of the year with strong momentum.

“The bottom line is this – what we’re doing is working. But don’t take my word for it. Forecasters on Wall Street project over the next 10 years our economy will expand by trillions of dollars and we’ll create two million more jobs a year,” Biden said.
