The President’s First Steps

In the midst of an eventful 2020, the United States held its much anticipated presidential election, a neck-to-neck tie between democrat Joe Biden and republican Donald Trump.

With the world nervously awaiting the results, candidate Joe Biden promised a much-needed proposal for dealing with the novel coronavirus. Throughout his presidential campaign, he promised to take the “coronavirus serioulsy”, in opposition of the past President.

On November 7, when Joe Biden won the 2020 presidency, he did not hesitate to offically announce his new coronavirus task force, just days into his new presidnecy.

Currently, the 12-person task force will be led by three co-chairs: former surgeon general Vivek Murthy, former Food and Drug Administration commissioner David Kessler, and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith of Yale University. The task force will carry on urgent experiments and research to highlight the important findings of this virus. With this task force, Biden alongside VP Kamala Harris, wish to return the nation’s attention and re-establish the sense of urgency needed to carefully protect ourselves from COVID-19. Part of their revealed plan is to hold televised briefings for the nation to be educated on.

While most details will be announced in details on November 9, Biden refers to his immediate steps in replica of his previous service as Vice President, under President Barack Obama, while dealing with the economic recession.

With the United States leading the case numbers and deaths, heading for the ninth month, our country is desperately need for proper guidance and the nation is ready to rely on Joe Biden, the 46th President of the United States of America.
