Team Biden will try to do without mass festivities during the inauguration

The activity of the ceremony will have a virtual character.
The team of the newly elected U.S. President Joe Biden will try during the inauguration in January to avoid mass gatherings and festivities in central Washington. It was announced by Biden himself, reports “The Voice of America”.

“I believe there will probably be no giant inauguration of the Pennsylvania Avenue parade,” Biden said.

He noted that large-scale celebrations could accelerate the spread of coronavirus, which the administration would like to avoid. The activity of the ceremony will be virtual.

“More people will participate in virtual events than ever before,” Biden said.

Earlier, Biden announced about key appointments in his office. He plans to appoint Anthony Blinken, former U.S. Secretary of State in 2015-2017 under President Barack Obama, as head of the State Department.

Biden wants to appoint Jake Sullivan as U.S. President’s national security advisor and Avril Haynes as director of National Intelligence.
