U.S. President-elect Joe Biden said Monday his administration’s goal was to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and save lives from the deadly virus.
“We cannot do without the important work that must be done by then to get our country through the worst wave of this pandemic. To reduce the spread. To save lives,” said Biden after major media networks made him the winner of November had declared 3 presidential elections.
Early Monday morning, Biden announced the formation of a COVID-19 advisory board. It consists of a group of eminent experts and is led by the Indian-American Dr. Vivek Murthy, Dr. David Kessler and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith jointly managed.
After meeting the group, Biden said he has appointed the COVID-19 Transition Advisory Board, composed of respected public health experts, to help the transition team turn Biden-Harris’ COVID-19 plan into a plan of action implement, which they can implement on January 20, when he is sworn in as President of the United States.
“This group will advise on detailed plans based on a foundation of science that focus on compassion, empathy and caring for every American: Make rapid tests widely available and build a corps of contact tracers to track and contain this disease we prioritize to get vaccinations to the most vulnerable populations first.
“Develop clear and detailed guidance and provide the necessary resources for small businesses, schools and daycare centers to reopen and operate safely and effectively during the pandemic – to protect workers and the public,” Biden said.
Biden said his administration’s work, which is still in transition, is beginning to do everything possible to get COVID-19 under control, to reopen businesses safely and sustainably, to resume life and put this pandemic behind it allow.
“We just got positive news in this battle with the announcement of progress towards a successful vaccine candidate. Soon the FDA will be going through a process of rigorous reviews and approvals,” he said, adding that the process is also scientifically based must and be fully transparent so that the people of America can be confident that any approved vaccine is safe and effective.
“At the same time, it is clear that even if this vaccine is approved, it will not be widely used for many months to come. The current challenge is still immense and growing, as is the need for bold action to tackle this pandemic. We always stand it was one dark winter before the United States now has nearly 10 million COVID-19 cases, “he said.
“Last week we passed 120,000 new cases over several days. Infection rates are rising. Hospital stays are rising. Deaths are rising. This crisis claims nearly a thousand Americans lives a day, up to nearly 240,000 deaths so far. And forecasts still suggest we could be in the.” Another 200,000 lives will be lost in the coming months before a vaccine can be made available to everyone, “Biden said.
The Biden-Harris Transition team has announced a seven-point plan to beat COVID-19. This includes ensuring that all Americans have access to regular, reliable, and free testing; Permanently resolve personal protective equipment (PPE) issues and provide clear, consistent, and evidence-based guidelines for managing the pandemic in communities – and the resources schools, small businesses, and families need to manage it.
It also calls for a plan for the effective and equitable distribution of treatments and vaccines – because if they are not distributed effectively, development will not suffice, protect older Americans and other vulnerable people, rebuild and expand immune systems to predict and prevent pandemics and mitigate threats, including those from China executing masked mandates nationwide, by working with governors and mayors and asking the American people to do what they do best: ascend in a time of crisis.
