美國新冠疫情日記 11/ 10
Change Is Coming
President-elect Biden announced a 12-person coronavirus task force today. The group will focus on the growing coronavirus pandemic, while for the third straight day the nation has surpassed 100,000 new cases.
Today the drug maker Pfizer made a very exciting announcement. An early look at the data from its coronavirus vaccine testing shows that it is more than 90% effective and much better than expected. The vaccine requires two doses, one month apart. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla called the coronavirus vaccine the greatest medical advancement in the world’s last one hundred years.
There are five ways Joe Biden says the U.S. coronavirus response will change when he’s president: Increased testing and contract tracing; Additional investment in vaccines and treatments; Mandatory masks and more PPEs; A push for clear consistent evidence based on guidance; Rejoining WHO and searching for future threats.
President Trump is so far refusing to sign off on a key document needed to formally begin the government transition process while he continues to refuse to concede the race.
We are urging the president-elect to pay attention not only to the pandemic and to the economy. We also need to look at the U.S. international affairs and rejoin the international community to lead the world again.
