Coronavirus cases aren't stopping anytime soon in the United States. From the past few weeks, the country has been reporting over 100K cases daily. President Donald Trump is adding more trouble amid the growing crisis. He looks least interested in conceding the defeat and proceeding with a smooth transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden. With the situation slowly going out of hands, public health experts, elected Democrats & Republicans, and Biden's transition team members have urged President Trump to start the transfer of power. They have also warned that any further delay could endanger American lives. Speaking to CNN, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said - "Of course the situation would be better if public health officials begin working with Biden's transition team right now. That should be obvious."
Trump and his administration are trying very hard to halt the transition process ever since Biden was declared as the winner of the elections. Traditionally, the General Services Administration is responsible for coordinating the presidential transitions as per the Presidential Transition Act of 1963. However, due to Trump's efforts, they are yet to recognize Biden as the president-elect, thereby blocking him from accessing the federal government's resources. On the other hand, Trump continues to maintain his stand that the election was rigged. The US reported almost 11 million coronavirus cases and more than 245,000 deaths. "We are in a very dangerous period, the most dangerous public health period since 1918 Spanish flu," Dr. Michael Osterholm, one of Biden's advisers, said in his interview to NBC's Meet the Press program on Sunday.
Dr. Fauci tried to simplify the dangers by comparing it to a baton. "It's just like passing a baton in a race. There shouldn't be any stopping in between. It should be transferred to somebody. The baton should essentially keep going further, and that is what transition is; it would certainly make things smooth for both the citizens and the administrative staff." Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders also criticized Trump for delaying the process. He said - "Trump's refusal to concede the defeat is absolutely disgraceful. He will have the distinction of undermining American democracy. The fact that he is not even cooperating in the transition and denying the reality is beyond belief in terms of behavior for any American president."Dr. Dhillon Randeep
