Amid the surge in coronavirus (Covid-19 infections in the United States, President-elect Joe Biden tweeted that urgent action is needed now by the current administration as he would take over next year.
“I am the president-elect, but will not be president until next year. COVID-19 does not respect dates on the calendar, it is accelerating right now. Urgent action is needed today, now, by the current administration,” Biden said in his tweet.
He said in his subsequent tweet that the coronavirus crisis “demands a robust and immediate federal response which has been woefully lacking”.
