BIDEN TRANSITION/CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP ADMIN: “I am the president-elect, but I will not be president until next year. The [coronavirus] crisis does not respect dates on the calendar, it is accelerating right now.
Urgent action is needed today, now, by the current [Trump] administration – starting with an acknowledgment of how serious the current situation is.
Resources for frontline health care workers, including personal protective equipment that is again in short supply. Surge capacity for hospitals that are at risk of running out of beds. Clear, science-based guidance for states, cities, tribal communities, businesses, and schools that are trying to manage the pandemic. Effective distribution of testing kits and supplies, as well as treatments and therapeutics. Making a priority of dealing with persistent race-based disparities in this pandemic.”
