According to the Associated Press, Biden also said he opposed a resolution proposed by House Republicans this week to immediately end the state of emergency.
It is reported that Republicans in the House of Representatives are also preparing to launch an investigation into the US federal government's response to the new crown epidemic.
In response, the Office of Management and Budget said in a statement: "The sudden cessation of the state of emergency will cause widespread confusion and uncertainty throughout the health care system -- for states, hospitals, and physicians' offices, most importantly. For tens of millions of Americans."
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since 2020, more than 1.1 million people in the United States have died from the new crown.
On March 13, 2020, then US President Trump declared a "national emergency" in response to the new crown epidemic.
Biden has extended the state of emergency several times since becoming president.
