Biden says 'no shutdown' as Covid cases surge in US

Nov 20, 2020 07:44 IST

United States President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday said he would not order a nationwide shutdown to combat the coronavirus pandemic despite a surge in cases. Biden, who takes office on January 20, told reporters that a national shutdown will be counter-productive. The United States continues to be the worst hit country from the Covid-19 pandemic with over 1.2 crore infections and more than 2.5 lakh deaths so far. The US govt has urged citizens to not travel during the Thanksgiving holiday to curb the spread of coronavirus.
