Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would wear a mask in public, drawing a significant contrast between President Trump amid the coronavirus pandemic in the United States. Speaking on ABC’s “The Week” show, Democratic presidential nominee highlighted a single phrase multiple times: “Follow the science.” He further added - “As the most advanced country in the world, it’s important for us to follow the science. Listen to the experts. Do what they tell you. Of late, I haven’t gone to commercial places. I’ve not gone to my local church etc. So, if I go out in public, I’ll definitely use a mask. My generic point is, you should follow the science.”
US Surgeon General Jerome Adams acknowledged in a news conference that the government’s guidance on masks has been pretty confusing to those who want to use a mask. To clear the air, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggested on Friday that people can wear nonsurgical, cloth face coverings when in public. The decision from the CDC came after Trump asked people to use cloth masks. The CDC team explained in a statement - “From the recent studies, we now know that a significant portion of individuals can transmit the virus to other people even before showing symptoms. This means the virus can spread easily when people are nearby, like when speaking, sneezing, or coughing.”
Although the first lady herself asked the Americans to consider wearing or covering the face seriously, President Trump clarified this was an optional health measure. On Friday, President Trump told reporters - “ This exercise is voluntary, I don’t think I’m doing it.” Biden, who has been critical of Trump for his slow response in handling the coronavirus, said - “Trump may not like how he looks in a mask, but the truth he needs to accept is that - follow the science. That’s what science experts are telling us to do.”
