- THE BLAZE - CHRIS ENLOE - DEC 19, 2021 -
President Joe Biden will address the nation on Tuesday over growing COVID-19 cases attributed to the Omicron variant, where he will issue a "stark warning" to those not vaccinated against COVID.
The national address will come at a time when scientists dispute the threat from Omicron. While the variant appears highly transmissible, the hospitalization rate in South Africa, where Omicron was first identified, suggests the case wave there has already peaked.
What are the details?
White House press secretary Jen Psaki released a statement Saturday announcing Biden's address, and she previewed what the president will say.
"On Tuesday, the President will deliver remarks on the status of the country's fight against COVID-19, as the country sees rising cases amid the growing Omicron variant," Psaki said.
"Building off his Winter Plan, @POTUS will announce new steps the Administration is taking to help communities in need of assistance, while also issuing a stark warning of what the winter will look like for Americans that choose to remain unvaccinated," she continued.
"We are prepared for the rising case levels, and @POTUS will detail how we will respond to this challenge. He will remind Americans that they can protect themselves from severe illness from COVID-19 by getting vaccinated and getting their booster shot when they are eligible," the statement added.
