Vaccines and scientists should be trusted, not Trump, says Joe Biden
By Ritika Nath
Democratic Party’s presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday said that he would trust on what the scientists are saying about a potential vaccine for the Novel Corona Virus rather than trusting President Donald Trump.
These comments were made over a debate on how the vaccines would get evaluated and distributed among the citizens when it is ready. This issue has taken the spotlight among the presidential candidates and has been on the centre stage for a while with not more than seven weeks to go until the November elections.
There has been a blame game going on constantly between Trump and Biden accusing each other of several things including that the opposition has been undermining the trust of the public related to a potential vaccine for Coronavirus.
Biden revealed his concerns that the approval process for the vaccine could get politicized, whereas Trump and his fellow allies say that such comments of Biden and the other Democrats are influencing people and turing them off for a potential lifesaver vaccine when it will be released.
Biden while speaking in Wilmington, Delaware after getting briefed by the public health experts on a potential vaccine quoted all the duplicities of President Trump related to the distribution of PPE kits and coronavirus testing. He also said that the United States cannot afford to repeat such wreckages while dealing with the antidote.
Biden stated, “I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump, and at this moment, the American people can’t either.”
Trump brought out new questions on Wednesday about the administration’s display of a vaccine when he publicly disputed the director of the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, who earlier at a congressional hearing said that the vaccine might not be made available to most Americans until the summer of 2021.
Supporting this situation Trump commented that the CDC Director Robert Redfield was very much confused which made him provide misinformation and that The US could start distributing the vaccine among the people by mid-October.
As the elections are nearing, all the presidential candidates have started using this pandemic as a wild card situation to gain the maximum amount of votes from the public. What would America’s future be and would the elected president be able to handle this situation? Let us know what you think.
