(AP) — The Biden administration has launched a new series of level-with-America health briefings. And it’s leading off with a sobering projection that as many as 90,000 people in the U.S. will die from the coronavirus in the next four weeks.
In Wednesday’s opening briefing, experts outlined efforts to improve the delivery and injection of vaccines to slow the spread and death toll. Americans can expect a sharp contrast from the Trump administration’s briefings, when public health officials were repeatedly undermined by a president who shared his unproven ideas without hesitation.
Wednesday’s briefing featured the Biden administration’s coordinator for pandemic response, as well as government scientists and public health officials.
