Donald John Trump
The Covid-19 Epedimic:
President Donald Trump said on Monday (Mar 23) he is considering how to reopen the US economy when a 15-day shutdown ends next week, even as the highly contagious coronavirus is spreading rapidly and hospitals are bracing for a wave of virus-related deaths.
"America will again and soon be open for business."
"We are not going to let it turn into a long-lasting financial problem."
“We can’t have the cure be worse than the problem.”
“I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”
Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
The Covid-19 Epedimic:
The former vice president released a detailed blueprint Thursday afternoon for combating coronavirus and future global health threats as he sharply criticized the Trump administration’s response. Biden called for ensuring widespread and free coronavirus testing; boosting federal resources and creating a “state and local emergency fund”; and eliminating cost barriers to preventive care, treatment and an eventual vaccine.
“Let me be crystal clear: the coronavirus does not have a political affiliation, “It will infect Republicans and Democrats alike. It will not discriminate based on national origin, race, gender, or zip code. It will touch people in positions of power and the most vulnerable in our society.”
Referring to President Trump, Biden stated; “Now he’s suggesting he wants to get the country back opened by Easter,” Biden told reporters on a video conference, warning that it was an arbitrary or symbolic timeline.
“It would be a catastrophic thing to do for our people and for our economy if we sent people back to work just as we were beginning to see the impact of social distancing take hold only to unleash a second spike in infections,” Biden said. “That’d be far more devastating in the long run.”
