Keith’s note: But wait: while OSTP’s Director Kelvin Droegemeier crows about accomplishments in various areas of science and technology, there is this glowing error that is wholly untrue – one which should, at a minimum – cause you to question the veracity of claims made by OSTP i.e. ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. The pandemic has not been ended. Not even close since it is entering its most harrowing phase. To even suggest otherwise is to spew demonstrably false propaganda.
