COVID-19: “Vice President-elect Harris and I just received a briefing from our COVID team. Truthfully, we remain in a very dark winter.

Infection rates are up 34%. More people are being hospitalized because of COVID than ever before. We’re up to 3,000-4,000 deaths per day as we approach the grim milestone of 400,000 deaths in America.

That’s staggering… The honest truth is this: things will get worse before they get better.”
