President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris say that they will move the pandemic response in an entirely different direction than President Trump. Biden is expected to announce the leaders that will serve on his coronavirus task force. The number one promise on Biden’s plan is to increase testing and contact tracing. Although testing has increased significantly since the beginning of the pandemic, scientists say that it is still not enough. Another promise on Biden’s list is to make additional investments into vaccines and treatment. The Trump administration has invested billions to develop and scale-up Covid-19 vaccines and treatments through Operation Warp Speed. Its goal is to produce and deliver 300 million doses of safe and effective vaccines by January 2021. Several potential vaccines are in large-scale trials. Biden promises to invest an additional $25 billion and make the vaccine free. Furthermore, Biden plans to reestablish the U.S. relationship with the World Health Organization.
