In addition, he also said that only “mitigation measures” such as a complete vaccine candidate and reasonable treatment regimens can defeat this pandemic.

In response to Mr. Meadows’s statement, Biden says the acknowledgment is a testament to President Trump’s administration “failing to fulfill their basic mission of protecting the American people” against the COVID-19 pandemic and the White House is “waving the white flag of surrender” in stopping the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The above statement of Mr. Meadows is made in the context of the number of new cases of COVID-19 in the US continuing to rise in many states and it is only more than 1 week until the official election day (November 3) to Select the next President to lead the US administration within the next four years.

According to election analysts in the US, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has made policies related to pandemic control and dealing with possible crises in the US economy one of the problems. The proposal was of particular interest to voters of this country before the November 3 election and contributed to the increase in the number of early voting by post and in person at polling stations.
