Florida – The Omicron surge has triggered a mutation in the conventional wisdom about Covid-19.

The virus “is here to stay,” oncologist Ezekiel Emanuel and two other experts who advised the Biden transition proclaimed in a January 6 article for the Journal of the American Medical Association, “A National Strategy for the ‘New Normal’ of Life With Covid.”

That means no more “perpetual state of emergency”: “The goal for the ‘new normal’ . . . does not include eradication or elimination.”

Joseph Ladapo reached the same conclusion almost two years earlier.

“Please don’t believe politicians who say we can control this with a few weeks of shutdown,” Dr. Ladapo, then a professor at UCLA’s medical school and a clinician on Covid’s frontline, wrote in USA Today on March 24, 2020.

“To contain a virus with shutdowns, you must either go big, which is what China did, or you don’t go at all…Here is my prescription for local and state leaders: Keep shutdowns short, keep the economy going, keep schools in session, keep jobs intact, and focus single-mindedly on building the capacity we need to survive this into our health care system.”
