On Dec. 8, President-elect Joe Biden detailed a three-point plan to combat COVID-19 within his first 100 days in office. The new administration aims to get at least 100 million Americans vaccinated, prioritizing health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities.
Biden also pledged to sign a face mask mandate, requiring masks in certain places. Lastly, he's made it a priority to get kids safely back in school. Biden consulted with Dr. Anthony Fauci to draft the plan.
He continues to call on Congress to pass a $900 billion COVID-19 economic relief bill and intends to take further action to help struggling Americans once he takes office.
"My first 100 days won't end the Covid-19 virus. I can't promise that," Biden said. "But I'm absolutely convinced that in 100 days we can change the course of the disease and change life in America for the better."
