COVID-19 is becoming endemic and will be part of everyone's lives for a long time, former Housing and Urban Development director Ben Carson, also a renowned neurosurgeon, told Newsmax on Saturday.

"We're going to have variations for several years to come. We can either let those control our policymaking, and there are certain politicians who would like to do that so that they can use things to their advantage."
Or, he said, the decision can be made to remove politics from public healthcare and do what is good for the American people, and "use the tremendous advantages we have in this nation and our scientific and medical community for the purposes of helping the people, not for the purposes of helping political agenda."
