President-elect Joe Biden on December 3 said that he will ask all citizens to wear masks for the first 100 days after he acquires the White House following the inauguration day on January 20, 2021. While talking to CNN for the first time after November 3, the winner of US Election 2020 indicated how he is willing to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic especially when the deaths and daily cases are reaching a record high. Saying that he will not give “forever” to American to wear masks, Biden assured that the United States will see a significant reduction in the outbreak once that happens.
Both Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris will be taking part in the first joint interview since winning the election at a time when they are aggressively building their administration and outlining the policy priorities that will dominate the White House for the next four years after Donald Trump. Biden indicated his start approach towards the COVID-19 pandemic from that of the incumbent when the deaths and cases of the highly-infectious disease reached highest levels recorded till date.
Meanwhile, Trump is seen sidelining the health crisis and making the baseless claims of ‘election fraud’ his primary concern. But the president-elect has chosen to talk about the economy, COVID-19 and climate crisis as the key issues.
