(AP) – President-elect Joe Biden is imploring Americans to “wear a mask” to help fight the spread of the coronavirus – “no matter who you voted for.” He says, “We are Americans, and our country is under threat.”

The Democrat said Monday the act could slow the death toll in the COVID-19 pandemic, which he noted could climb by 200,000 more before a vaccine is widely available.

Biden said, “Please, I implore you, wear a mask.” He noted masks could save the lives of older people, children and teachers and added: “It could even save your own life.” Biden is assuming a public leadership role in the fight against the pandemic ahead of being sworn in.
