US President-elect Joe Biden predicted a timeline for improvement in the situation with the coronavirus in the country.
He predicted that “things will get worse before they get better.” According to the Democrat, citizens may not see a positive trend with the pandemic until March. “Critics said I was alarmist, but I always promised to tell you how things really are,” the politician explained.
Biden stressed that the actions of the administration of the current head of state, Donald Trump, have “fallen far short” of what is needed. Furthermore, at the current rate of vaccination, it would take “years, not months,” to create a collective immunity against COVID-19. Even if production of the drug were to accelerate dramatically, the majority of the U.S. population could be vaccinated in a few months, he concluded.
Earlier, Biden predicted a difficult period in the fight against a pandemic coronavirus in the United States. He said that despite the nation’s initial vaccination efforts, “people will continue to get infected and die” from the effects of the virus-caused disease. “The simple truth is that the toughest days in our fight against COVID-19 are yet to come,” he said. The politician assured that his administration will get down to its tasks on the first day after the inauguration, which is Jan. 20.
