Biden has predicted that the national death toll from COVID-19 would exceed more than a half-million by next month. Refusing to call for a nationwide lockdown to stem the continuing surge in infections and death, he and his administration will bear the responsibility for a significant proportion of this misery.
Biden declared yesterday that “there is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” This is a blatant lie, and an assertion that would meet with even Donald Trump’s approval.
We are fucked. News about these stronger strains of the virus is downright terrifying, and signals the need for a national lockdown immediately.
