Cases and deaths both still disturbingly elevated, seemingly endlessly, to be real honest. Doesn't look "controlled" to me, there, Brandon. Care to clarify your promise to "control the virus?" Do you even remember saying that? Any lefties want to weigh in on why he failed to fulfill that promise? Anyone? Bueller?
The deliberate sabotage of public health for political gain by right-wing activists didn’t help. But at least we’ve made some progress.

In terms of the vaccinated the virus is manageable but for the unvaccinated it remains a threat. The status and recommendations for booster shots allows it to be treated as the flu is treated with vaccinations. Of course being unvaccinated for coronavirus is much more deadly but you can't make people get vaccinated so they are on their own. Here is a revealing chart that tells the story:

Still well over 500 deaths a day (a rate that translates to almost 200,000 a year), and still no lefties able to explain how that constitutes "control" over the virus, as Brandon vowed if he were to be elected. It's like they think if they ignore it, it will go away.
Cutting the daily death rate you extrapolate from by a factor of nearly 3, after inheriting not a plan which if followed would prevent a large majority of infections and deaths, but rather a full-blown crisis with (after sabotage of public health for political gain) far fewer options than the ones Trump squandered may be the best we can hope for consistent with capitalism.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

Way to move those goalposts. We pretend to be sick and they pretend to heal us?

There's always an excuse for lefty policy failures. Real covid control has never been tried?

United Kingdom: 5.4 deaths per million population per day
Brazil: 5.0 deaths per million population per day
United States under Trump: 3.7 deaths per million population per day
Sweden: 3.2 deaths per million population per day
United States under Biden: 3.2 deaths per million population per day
Israel: 2.1 deaths per million population p
Cuba: 1.3 deaths per million population per day
Vietnam: 1.1 deaths per million population per day
New Zealand: 1.0 deaths per million population per day
S. Korea: 0.87 deaths per million population per day
Taiwan: 0.72 deaths per million population per day
N. Korea: 0.022 deaths per million population per day
Mainland China: 0.0055 deaths per million population per day

Clearly policy makes a huge difference.

The mRNA vaxxed are screwed. The unvaxxed have moved on without a care in the world.

That is an absurd generalization - I don't think you could find a broader brush to paint that picture with.

Covid like the 1918 FLU (with no vaccines but masks) has gone away a long time ago. Your stats have been rigged for pushing on a year now.

You're the other extreme from those that say the Covid was a mere flu in 2020/21.

Actually, it's you that's extreme on every topic you post about here. That's saying it nicely too.
