President-elect Joe Biden predicted a difficult period in the fight against the pandemic coronavirus in the United States during a press conference in Wilmington, Delaware.
The politician noted that despite the vaccination that has begun in the United States, “people will continue to get infected and die” from the effects of the disease caused by the virus. “The simple truth is that the toughest days in our fight against COVID-19 are yet to come,” he said.
The Democrat added that not a second should be lost in the fight against the crisis. According to Biden, his administration will begin its tasks on the first day after the inauguration, which will take place on January 20.
Earlier, Biden told what he planned to do in his first 100 days as White House president. The politician promised to provide “immediate assistance” to the authorities of the states affected by the coronavirus epidemic. In particular, he spoke of the need to help the communities most affected by the pandemic, including minority communities, and “give them such help so that people stay afloat.” At the same time, the politician did not disclose how he plans to achieve this, given the reluctance of Congress to reach an agreement with the White House on this issue.
