With over 6.7 million cases, the United States of America is the worst affected country in the world in terms of total positive cases. It isn’t easy to interact with people and continue the campaign trail for any candidate for the upcoming presidential elections. It only worsens if the candidate is over 75 years of age. Former vice president Joe Biden is currently dealing with all the above things in his attempt to win the race for the White House against President Donald Trump. Biden, who is 77 years old, will become the oldest president to serve the country if he wins the elections this November. Amid the coronavirus scare, the Democratic presidential nominee is taking all the precautions to safeguard himself and his campaign team from the virus.
Starting with Biden’s chartered planes to his SUVs, all of them are sprayed with disinfectant and scrubbed just before he boards them. The folders, files, lecterns, podiums, and microphones are sanitized and wiped moments before his arrival. The sanitization precautions don’t stop here; temperatures of all the journalists who cover Biden’s campaign are taken before interacting with the former vice president. Biden is rarely seen without a mask when in public or around any other person other than his wife, Jill Biden. When it comes to his home, only limited staff have access to him and his family. When the staff is near Biden, each of them wears a mask, including Biden. On most occasions, Biden operates in a sanitizer-saturated bubble similar to that of the presidential campaign bubble. The bubble is specifically designed to tackle the virus.
With all the above precautions, Biden’s campaign is always committed to taking care of the citizens without undermining COVID precautions, unlike President Donald Trump. The latter refuses to wear a mask, even in public. “We don’t want any additional Americans to contract the virus. We have been hearing consistently from people because they are frustrated with the way Trump handled the pandemic without giving any importance to public health guidelines. They are completely frustrated when they see President Trump acting irresponsibly at a political event,” said Kate Bedingfield, deputy manager of Biden’s campaign.
