Joe Biden Tells All Americans to Wear a Mask to “Save Thousands of Lives”

Us president-elect Joe Biden urged all Americans to wear a mask, as the best way to “turn this pandemic around”. Mr. Biden said the US faced a "very dark winter" and the "worst wave yet", and Americans had to put aside political differences to tackle Covid-19. The president-elect claimed tens of thousands of lives could be saved if everyone in the US wore masks in the next few months.

 

This was the clearest message yet in the US on the effectiveness of the population wearing a mask to stop the spread of the virus. Any Americans took to the streets to protest social distancing and mask wearing.

 

Donald Trump famously disregarded scientists advice on mask wearing and wore one sporadically. Mr Trump and his wife both tested positive for Covid-19, with Trump spending time in a US hospital.

 

In a TV address on Monday, Joe Biden  said "I implore you, wear a mask", calling it the "single most effective thing we can do to stop the spread of Covid".

 

Expressing a message of unity, he said: "I implore you, wear a mask. Do it for yourself. Do it for your neighbour. A mask is not a political statement. But it is a good way to start pulling the country together.

 

"The goal of mask wearing is not to make your life less comfortable, or to take something away from you. It is to give something back to all of us, a normal life.

 

"It won't be forever but that's how we get our nation back - back up to speed economically - so we can go back to celebrating birthdays and holidays together."

 

He has named a new task force and vowed to "follow the science" as he puts together his transition team.

 

 

During the election campaign, his mask-wearing was markedly different to President Trump, whose attitude to it has varied considerably.

 

They have differed too on how to follow scientific advice. Mr Biden said on Monday there would be a "bedrock of science" to his policy. President Trump's comments on Covid-19 have often conflicted with scientists, including leading infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.

 

On Monday, Covid 19 cases in the US since the epidemic began passed 10 million, and there have been more than 237,000 deaths recorded so far, as shown by Johns Hopkins research.

 

The president-elect warned that 200,000 more Americans could die before an effective vaccine is widely rolled out.

 

Mr Biden said the challenge facing the country over coronavirus  is still "immense" and "growing" - despite news of a vaccine breakthrough.
