When Joe Biden was running for president, we heard a lot about his brilliant plan for navigating America through and out of the COVID19 pandemic, but the details were sketchy.
Now that Joe Biden is the presumptive president-elect, we can finally find out what’s in his plan.
OK, Symone D. Sanders. Let’s hear it:

Not true! Because in addition to doing the exact same thing we’re already doing, a national lockdown is back on the table:
Biden Covid adviser Dr. Michael Osterholm threatens a "four-to-six weeks" national lockdown to help "drive the numbers down" on Covid. He references an op/ed in which he says the lockdown must be "as comprehensive and strict as possible.” pic.twitter.com/jQLDHhocOn

I still don’t understand the uproar over Trump administration’s handling of this virus. What do they think should have been done – and exactly what would they do differently? Serious question

It's a question nobody can answer. Because the answer is … nothing.

Well, a 4- to 6-week national lockdown would be special, at least.
