The federal government on Thursday extended its COVID-19 emergency for another 90 days despite President Joe Biden declaring the pandemic "over" weeks earlier.

U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra confirmed the extension of the emergency in announcement posted on its website. No other details were provided.

He said that "a public health emergency exists and has existed since January 27, 2020, nationwide," and it will continue to remain in effect.

The public health emergency, first declared in January 2020 and renewed every 90 days since, has dramatically changed how health services are delivered.
