15 minutes. The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, promised on Tuesday that 100 million doses of the vaccine for covid-19 will be administered in his first 100 days in the White House.
The leader Elect made this announcement during the presentation of his chosen ones to occupy key Sanitary positions in the White House: “This team will help to put at least 100 million vaccines for the covid-19 in the arms of the Americans”, said Biden in a event in Wilmington (Delaware), where he resides, in which he was accompanied by some of the nominees.
The administration of 100 million doses of vaccine is the second point of the plan to combat the pandemic.
Regarding that plan, the president-elect indicated that the country will not come out of the pandemic soon, but that it will take a while. “I am absolutely convinced that we can change the course of the disease in 100 days.”
The first point of the plan will be to order the mandatory use of a facial mask.
Right of all
On the other hand, Biden criticized without explicitly naming the outgoing president, Donald Trump, when he mentioned his administration’s efforts to end the Affordable Care Act (ACA, in English), popularly known as Obamacare.
“Health care is a right for everyone, not a privilege for a few,” Biden said.
He stressed that while the country has exceeded 15 million infections “the outgoing Administration is asking the Supreme Court to revoke the entire Affordable Care Act”, just when it is most needed.
Biden spoke these words during the formal presentation of his nominees for key positions in Health.
Among the nominees that stand out the current attorney general of California, Xavier Becerra, and the epidemiologist Anthony Fauci.
Becerra, of Mexican origin and chosen to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, intervened at the event.
“No one, no one should die alone in a hospital bed, with loved ones forced to stay away,” Becerra said.
