Democratic presidential candidate Joseph Biden accused incumbent President Donald Trump of hushing up the danger of coronavirus infection. On Wednesday, September 9, he wrote about this in his Twitter…
“He lied to us for many months. And at a time when a deadly disease swept away everything in its path in our country, he deliberately did not fulfill the duties assigned to him. It was a betrayal on which the lives and deaths of Americans depended, ”the politician wrote.
Biden was prompted to make such a statement by the publication in the American media of an excerpt from the Washington Post columnist Bob Woodward’s book “Rage”, where the journalist claims that Trump was aware even before the pandemic that he was a new type of coronavirus: on February 7, in a CNN report, the American leader said that COVID-19 is five times more deadly than influenza.
On September 4, US President Donald Trump announced that the coronavirus vaccine, which is now being developed in the United States, could be ready in October. Three large pharmaceutical companies are developing a vaccine against COVID-19. At the same time, the American leader stressed that the vaccine being developed in the United States would be “excellent”, as it is being developed by “incredible” companies.
According to Johns Hopkins University, since the beginning of the pandemic, 6.3 million cases of infection have been recorded in the United States, 190 thousand people have died.
