President-elect Joe Biden says the U.S. is in the middle of a very dark winter during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Today from Delaware, he again warned that things will get worse before they will get better. Biden also noted that millions of people are still hurting during the ongoing pandemic, through no fault of their own. He defended his proposal for an aggressive new coronavirus relief package and said it's time to go big.
Biden called the Trump administration's rollout of coronavirus vaccinations a dismal failure. Biden argued that vaccinations must be significantly ramped-up nationwide. Biden suggested that vaccination sites should include large sports facilities, gyms and community centers. He said his administration's coronavirus response will be guided by science, free of political influence. Meantime, Biden criticized organized disinformation campaigns about the vaccines.
Biden said any uncertainty about getting vaccinated must be addressed head-on. He stressed that the stakes are high as the health of the nation is literally at stake. Biden noted that he will ask Americans to wear face masks for the first 100 days of his administration. He said face masks have become a divisive political issue and called it a "stupid, stupid thing."
