On November 7, 2020, Joe Biden won the Presidential race, Donald Trump, as the 46th president-elect of the United States. Biden aims to create a foundation and rebuild the legacy that Obama left the United States in 2016. 

During the presidential race debates, issues addressing Coronavirus, and Health proved to be relevant issues for citizens of the United States in the Presidential election. At the end of 2019 COVID-19 outbroke in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China reported on December 31, 2020. The Coronavirus thought to have been contained in China entered the United States on January 22, 2020. In the following poor communication and regulations in the United States leading up to millions of unemployed Americans and nearly 243 thousand deaths. 

Biden’s plan to combat coronavirus(COVID-19) is rooted in his devotion to eliminate economic barriers about coronavirus and provide a public health system that increases actability to the public health system and paid leave, and economic support for those who are affected by the outbreak. The limitation of economic barrier in testing and treatment for the coronavirus is essential in containing and stopping the spread of the disease. Biden’s plan aims to depoliticize the Coronavirus(COVID-19). Biden demands that the pandemic be addressed from a  public health standpoint and making decisions based upon recommendations from specialize in public health issues instead of politicians. The de-politicalization  of the coronavirus will lead to the unification in the United States in regard to the fight against COVID-19. The health of the citizens of the United States is reflected in Biden’s goals to provide access to testing and treatment, and the deploilizing of the coronavirus. 

As the Coronavirus rates increase in the United States in the coming months an increase in priority in availability of care for people and limitation of the spread is critical to the stability of the economy and health of the citizens. Biden plans to grow the capacity of American hospitals. The government plans to use the resources of the U.S. The Department of Defense (DOD) increased the capacity of hospitals across the United States by deploying the National Guard, and the Medical Reserve Corps. The Medical Reserve Corps consists of approximately 200,000 volunteers that are healthcare professionals, the deployment of the volunteers will allow for 20% more patients then current capacity. The surge of cases across the United States will be addressed by the plans created and expectantly implemented once Biden is sworn in as President.
