Responding to critics calling his plans for alleviating the pandemic ambitious without specifying a date, Biden set an end to the health crisis by summer. According to the new President, there is enough coronavirus vaccine for more than 300 million American citizens.
Even though there is no certainty that everything will soon go back to normal, Biden is still determined to put down a date to his goal. During the first week of his term, he has been putting a lot of effort seeking to urge federal, state, and local governments to take unified actions especially during this crisis.
Significance of Biden’s Determination
Biden announced last Tuesday that help is on the way after buying 300 million doses of vaccine and to deliver the vaccines to various states. The President confessed that if the supply cannot be acquired in a short period of time, by next month, the projected death count from COVID-19 can reach 500,000..
The significance of Biden’s plans is that it boosts the morale of people who have been through a lot this year where it was all about lockdowns, quarantines, sickness, and social distance.
According to the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, Dr. Ashish Jha, if 300 million were to get vaccinated by the end of summer, drastic changes will happen. These changes are positive as there are signs that the federal government is finally taking action and has a solid plan that could give businesses a chance to recover.
