CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP ADMIN/VACCINES: “As I’ve said before, we will use the Defense Production Act to work with private industry to accelerate the making of materials needed to supply and administer the [coronavirus] vaccine, from tubes and syringes to protective equipment…

As we made clear earlier this month, the Trump administration policy of holding back close to half of the supply did not make sense.

My administration will release the vast majority of the vaccines when they are available, so more people can get vaccinated quickly, while still retaining a small reserve for any unforeseen shortages or delays.

Let me be clear: we are not changing the FDA’s recommended dosing schedule. We believe it is critical that everyone should get two doses within that FDA recommended timeframe.”

CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “By the end of our first month in office, we will have 100 federally-supported centers across the nation that will ultimately vaccinate millions of people [against coronavirus]…

Within the first month of our administration, we will deploy mobile clinics. We will partner with community health centers, and local primary care doctors to offer vaccines to hard-to-reach communities in cities, small towns, and rural communities.”

CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “If you were to ask most people today, they couldn’t tell you who exactly should be getting vaccinated.

What they do know is there are tens of millions of doses of [coronavirus] vaccines sitting unused in a freezer, while people who want and need the vaccine can’t get it.

We’ll fix the problem by encouraging states to allow more people to get vaccinated beyond health care workers and move through these groups as quickly as states think they can.

That includes anyone 65 and older — a population that has accounted for 80% of the deaths to date.”

CORONAVIRUS/ECONOMY/JOBS/JOE BIDEN: “Our [coronavirus] rescue plan also includes immediate relief for Americans hardest hit and most in need.

We will finish the job of getting a total of $2,000 in direct relief to people who need it the most.

$600 is simply not enough if you still have to choose between paying rent and putting food on the table…

We will also provide more peace of mind for struggling families by extending unemployment insurance benefits for millions of workers.

That means that the 18 million Americans currently relying on unemployment benefits
while they look for work can count on these checks continuing to be there. Plus, there will be a $400 per week supplement to help make ends meet.”

This will be one of the most challenging operational efforts we have ever undertaken as a nation.

Almost exactly one year later, nearly 400,000 of our fellow Americans have met the same cruel fate. Countless families and friends left behind, with unrelenting grief and guilt, anger and frustration. And the emptiness felt by the loss of life is compounded by the loss of our way of life…

A crisis of deep human suffering in plain sight.

CORONAVIRUS/VACCINE: “Because of the pandemic — horrible, horrible invisible enemy — and despite our tremendous success developing a [coronavirus] vaccine years before it was thought evenly remotely possible. Nobody thought it was going to be possible. They said would take five years. ‘Sir, it will take seven years.’ All of our scientists were saying — our advisors, ‘It will take 7 years, 5 years, 10 years maybe.’ Well, we did it just like I said we would. And we had it out years and years before they thought it was possible. And we’re now delivering it to states, including your state, where your governor and government are doing a terrific job in getting it administered in Texas. And Florida is doing great. Some of them are doing great. Some aren’t doing as well, but they have all they can handle. And we get it to them as fast as they need it, and even faster.

But they’re calling it a ‘medical miracle.’ And this has been a difficult year and a very difficult election. The pandemic has made it a very, very difficult year for our country and virtually every country all over the world.”

You’re going to see more and more people laid off, more firefighters, police officers, school teachers, first responders, the people we need badly now. The states need more money to do the job.

But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that of more than 12.4 million doses distributed, just under 2.8 million have actually been administered…

States and counties need more resources to accelerate the pace of vaccination, Fauci said. Trump in recent days has defended his administration’s rollout by saying it’s the responsibility of the states to administer the shots once they’re delivered by Operation Warp Speed.”

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP ADMIN/VACCINES: “I want to [be] clear about five things every American should know about our efforts to contain COVID-19 and where the [coronavirus] vaccine stands today.

First — things will get worse before they get better…

Second, the Trump administration’s plan to distribute vaccines is falling behind, far behind… A few weeks ago the Trump Administration suggested that 20 million Americans could be vaccinated by the end of December.

With only a few days left in December, we have only vaccinated a few million so far.

At the pace the vaccination program is moving now, it would take years, not months, to vaccinate the American people.

Which brings me to the third thing every American should know: the Biden-Harris Administration will spare no effort to make sure people are getting vaccinated…

And that gets to the fourth thing you should know: I will move Heaven and Earth to get us going in the right direction.

I will use my power under the Defense Production Act to order private industry to accelerate the making of materials needed for the vaccine…

Fifth — while the pandemic rages on and as we increase the supply, distribution, and administration of the vaccine, we must remain vigilant.

As part of our 100-day challenge, I’ll be asking the American people to wear a mask for the first 100 days of my administration.

The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud.

Big Tech must not get protections of Section 230!

Voter Fraud must be fixed!

Much more money is coming. I will never give up my fight for the American people!”

Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression.

But President Donald Trump’s sudden insistence Tuesday that lawmakers boost the bill’s $600 stimulus checks to $2,000 per person is now throwing the timing and amount of the checks into question…

Another round of negotiations could delay the bill by several days, while a veto from Mr. Trump could delay passage of a bill by weeks.”

Covid relief has been central issue in the tight election that will decide control of the Senate. If at least one Republican wins in the Jan. 5 election, the GOP will retain control of the upper chamber. If both Democrats win, Democrats will have control of the White House and Congress.”

Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists, and special interests, while sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it. It wasn’t their fault, it was China’s fault, not their fault.

I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple. I am also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill, or else the next administration will have to deliver a COVID relief package, and maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done.”

Experts say things will get worse notwithstanding the vaccine. We’re averaging a death rate of close to 3,000 a day. That means we will lose tens of thousands of more lives in the months to come, and the vaccine won’t be able to stop that.

So we still have to remain vigilant.

Number two, all those people are out there hurting, have lost jobs through no fault of their own, they’ve extended unemployment for 10 weeks. Simply not sufficient… The things that are left to deal with from unemployment to people needing unemployment insurance to the ability to have access to healthcare, the ability to get this treatment for free, et cetera, all of that is something that the public is not going to stand for us not doing.

Together, the Vice President-elect Harris and I earned 306 electoral votes, well exceeding the 270 electoral votes needed to secure victory. 306 electoral votes is the same number of electoral votes that Donald Trump and Vice President Pence received when they won in 2016…
