On Friday, Presidential candidate Joe Biden explained how the pandemic would be handled by a Biden administration just one day after the United States reported almost a record daily high in new cases of coronavirus.
Biden said he would start carrying out his strategy even before he was inaugurated if he were elected. He announced that during the transition, he would reach out to every governor in every state, red and blue, and mayors and local leaders, to find out what help they need and how much assistance they need.
He would also ask Congress to place a bill on his desk with all requisite resources by the end of January to develop public health and economical solutions. As part of his national strategy to combat the pandemic if elected to the White House, Joe Biden vowed on Friday that a possible coronavirus vaccine would be free for all.
Biden insists that to fulfill public health needs and cope with the increasing economic implications, they must invest whatever it takes without hesitation.
Emergencies in public health require disciplined, scientifically informed, trustworthy leadership. Leadership involves listening to experts and sharing credible facts with the American public in a moment of crisis.
Biden knows how to mount an efficient reaction to the crisis and raise scientists’ voices, public health experts, and first responders. He supported the Obama-Biden lead,
President Donald Trump, who lags behind Biden in the polls, also needs to be immune from the future virus vaccine, ready in the next few weeks. The Democrats blame Trump for failing to put a powerful federal reaction to the pandemic that killed more than 223,000 people in the U.S.
It already surpasses all America has faced in recent history with the rising state of COVID-19 and shows no sign of slowing down. Biden then shared his concern about how this situation had been going on for almost eight months, and there was still no strategy for the President.
Even during the final presidential debate on Thursday, Trump asserted that the virus is going away, even though cases are surging in most nations. He also suggested that the nation is learning to deal with it, while Biden fired back with individuals, they had to die with it.
