United States President-elect, Joe Biden has said his first task in office is to get the coronavirus pandemic under control.
Biden stated this in his acceptance speech, which he delivered before a crowd of supporters in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, Saturday night.
“Our work begins with getting COVID-19 under control.
“We cannot repair the economy, restore our vitality, or relish life’s most precious moments: hugging a grandchild, our children, birthdays, weddings, graduations, all the moments that matter most to us, until we get it under control.
He further stated that he will name a group of leading scientists and experts as transition advisers to help take the Biden-Harris COVID-19 plan and convert it into actual blueprint that will start on Jan. 20, 2021.
Biden explained that the plan will be built on the bedrock of science and will be constructed out of compassion, empathy and concern.
“I will spare no effort, none, or any commitment to turn around this pandemic,” he said.
