US Facing four historic crises at once: Joe Biden

Vastavam web: US President-elect Joe Biden on Sunday said that his country is facing “four historic crises at once”, adding that his team is work working hard to tackle
the time-bound challenges. “From COVID-19 and the economy to climate change and racial justice our nation is facing four historic crises at once. And come January, there will be no time to waste. That’s why my team and I are hard at work preparing to take action on day one,” Biden tweeted.

On Saturday, Biden had accused Donald Trump of “abdicating responsibility” and had pressed the outgoing President to immediately sign the COVID-19 relief bill that was pending. Members of both parties had urged Trump to sign the USD 2.3 trillion packages, The Hill reported. Earlier, the bill was passed with bipartisan support in US Congress.

Earlier today, top infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci said the United States is headed for the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic in the upcoming weeks as Americans will see the effects of the holiday season. President-elect Biden last week had said that “darkest days” against coronavirus “are ahead of us, not behind us.” The COVID-19 case total in the United States surpassed 19 million-mark on Sunday (local time), according to the US-based Johns Hopkins University, which tracks and compiles data from various sources including local authorities and media outlets.
