Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “WATCH Biden's Speech About His Covid Plan”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech from Wilmington, Delaware Friday afternoon to lay out his plan for addressing the coronavirus pandemic, telling American voters, “I’m not going to shut down the country; I’m going to shut down the virus.”

Biden laid out several measures that he would employ to “put in place a national strategy that will position our country to finally get ahead of this virus and get back our lives.”

“Look, a pandemic doesn’t play favorites, nor will I,” said Biden. “As I said, no red states, no blue states, just the United States, united in our response, united in our purpose to stop the spread of Covid-19 and beat this virus.”

Biden’s plan included asking all the state governors to institute mask wearing mandates, and if any refused, he would go to mayors and county officials to encourage local measures.

“Wearing a mask is not a political statement, it’s a scientific imperative,” said Biden. “It’s a point of patriotic pride so we can pull our country out of this God-awful spiral we’re in.”
