“Please, I beg you to wear a mask. Do this for yourself, for your neighbor … wearing a mask is not a political statement, but a good way to start uniting, ”Biden said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.
After many supporters of incumbent President Donald Trump claimed that the obligation to wear a mask violates their constitutional rights, Joe Biden has a different opinion.
“The purpose of the mask is not to make our lives less comfortable or to take something from us. But to return to a normal situation as soon as possible “, Biden added.
Joe Biden announced on Monday the leadership of the advisory board that will advise his future administration in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic.
The council is to be chaired by three of its top advisers – former FDA chief David Kessler, former surgeon general Vivek Murthy and Marcella Nunez-Smith, an associate professor of internal medicine, public health and management at Yale University.
Rick Bright, an integrity activist who claims to have been fired from the Trump administration’s BARDA post after criticizing the country’s readiness to fight covid-19, is also on the board.
