President Joe Biden is scrambling to stop the spread of the Omicron Covid variant, which has become the dominant strain in the US.It made up 73% of new cases last week, with data suggesting it accounts for 90% of new infections in places such as New York, the Pacific North West, the South East and the upper Midwest."The President is tested on a regular basis.But President Biden has has been branded the ‘grim reaper’ by critics for his doomsday approach to the new variant.He will fill the staff vacancy created by the death of Champ Biden, Mr Biden’s previous senior adviser for Canine-American affairs.In a statement last week, White House Covid response coordinator Jeff Zients said: ‘We are intent on not letting Omicron disrupt work and school for the vaccinated.READ MORE: 46th President Joe Biden (Image: Getty) "This morning, after being notified of the staffer’s positive test, the President received a PCR test and tested negative.You’ve done the right thing, and we will get through this.But the news was not so good for another member of the Biden animal family.

‘For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families, and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm."As CDC guidance does not require fully vaccinated people to quarantine after an exposure, the President will continue with his daily schedule.’ In a similar statement, President Biden said: ‘I want to send a direct message to the American people: Due to the steps we’ve taken, Omicron has not yet spread as fast as it would have otherwise done.Joe Biden has been branded the ‘grim reaper’ over the White House’s messaging ‘But it’s here now, and it’s spreading, and it’s going to increase … We are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated – for themselves, their families and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm.The 46th President is also said to be fully inoculated and has received his booster dose.‘But there’s good news: If you’re vaccinated, and you have your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death.’ Clearly this is an attempt to persuade people into getting jabbed, but not everyone is convinced that shaming people will convince them to change their minds.Champ, right, and Major.
