President Biden said in an official statement on Thursday that the United States must commit to fighting the “ever-changing” nation for the virus, as he expects 1 million Americans to die from Kovid-19.
“We need to be vigilant about this pandemic and do everything possible to save as many lives as possible because we have more tests, vaccines and treatments than ever before,” he said. These resources are important. “
Mr Biden’s announcement a few hours before the second COVID-19 summit was intended to inject new impetus into the global coronavirus response. Mr Biden will make an announcement on Thursday that the White House and all federal buildings will have to travel at half staff by next Monday to commemorate the 1 million deaths.
As of Wednesday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported more than 995,000 coronavirus deaths; The New York Times database kept this number at over 997,000. But with heads of state, volunteers and drugmakers attending virtual meetings, Mr. Biden is ready for what is to come.
