HHS expected to renew Covid-19 public health emergency for 11th time

The following is an excerpt from Becker’s Hospital Review.

HHS is set to extend the Covid-19 public health emergency by its standing deadline of Oct. 13. 

If renewed on the deadline of Oct. 13, the next deadline would be Jan. 11, 2023.

This would make for the 11th renewal of the PHE since its declaration in January 2020 by former and current HHS secretaries Alex Azar and Xavier Becerra, respectively.

The renewal would occur as HHS plans to shift costs of Covid-19 vaccines and treatments to the commercial market, a process beginning this fall that is expected to take months. 

Hospitals have advocated for the PHE’s extension.

In July, the Federation of American Hospitals, which represents investor-owned or managed hospitals, urged HHS “in the strongest terms possible” to renew PHE through 2023.

For an overview of the flexibilities tied to the PHE and what occurs when the declaration ends, check out a comprehensive brief from Kaiser Family Foundation here.

  1. We have long since reached the point where anyone who is still calling this a “public health emergency” really belongs either in a mental institution if they really believe what they’re saying, or in prison if they don’t.

    The poor sheeple who are still swallowing all the “pandemic” bs are at least suffering from a severe psychological disorder that requires intensive treatment. We need a name for that, like SADS meaning “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.” How about “Propaganda-induced Delusional Thinking Syndrome” or PDTS for short, similar to PTSD meaning “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder”?

  2. Odd, that HHS would extend the Covid-19 “emergency “ when on Sunday Biden announced on 60 Minutes the pandemic is over! So which is it Joe?

  3. I have always had the suspicion that this EUA was like the Patriot Act, a sort of backdoor to avoid the Constitution and protection of our civil liberties. I don’t think they are going to give it up until they are forced to.

  4. Great article Sharyl –
    I saw a video in early 2020 with you explaining the concepts in your book ‘Slanted’ and it was the first time I woke up to the fact that our mass media had been turned into a global disinformation machine being used against the whole of humanity.
    Your integrity, courage and grit shines through in everything you do, and you are definitely part of the solution.
    thank you!!

    A Message to Greg Hill
    Greg, if you sheer chance you happen to come across my comment I would like to say your suggestion for PIDTS is brilliant – and I want to turn this into an article on my Substack blog.
    Here’s a link to my blog – if you see this please let me know, and I will quote your name as credit for who came up with the idea – no rush though.
