Biden warns ‘winter of death’ awaits unvaccinated as Omicron spreads

TRT World says President Joe Biden has warned that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus will “start to spread much more rapidly” in the United States and urged Americans to get vaccinated or boosted.

“The only real protection is to get your shot,” he said on Thursday, predicting “a winter of severe illness and death” for the unvaccinated.

Biden brought reporters in at the end of a meeting on the pandemic to send a message directly to Americans.

He stressed the importance of vaccinated people getting a booster and of those who have yet to be vaccinated receiving their first shot.

Shortly before, deputy White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre had suggested the administration did not intend to take specific restrictive measures for the moment and to focus instead on vaccination.

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
