President Joe Biden has signed a flurry of executive orders to boost the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. Under the new orders, the testing and vaccination across the country will be ramped up. Meanwhile, the new administration also plans to use emergency legislation to boost the production of critical medical equipment, including facemasks.

While announcing ten new measures, Biden told the Americans that it would take months to curb the coronavirus pandemic. He further added that if all the people stood together, “the US would get through it. Unlike the previous administration of Donald Trump, Biden’s tragedy emphasizes more on national response rather than relying on the states.

Since the US recorded its first confirmed case of the virus, the Trump administration had been criticized for its response to the pandemic. So far, America remains the worst-affected country by the virus in terms of total infections. According to the data compiled by the John Hopkins University, the US has recorded more than 406,000 fatalities with nearly 24.5 million confirmed infections.

Biden further told Americans that the previous administration’s coronavirus vaccination drive has been a dismissal failure. He described his plan of 100 million vaccine distribution in the first hundred days in office as one of the greatest operational challenges for his administration. President also vowed to keep the transparency about the setbacks and added that he would let the scientists work free from any political interference from the White House.

Later, America’s top infectious disease expert addressed the nation and said that the new administration was amplifying the program that was already in place. Anthony Fauci said that if the government managed to vaccinate as many as 85 percent of the population by the end of summer, the situation would be much better in Autumn. Fauci added that his biggest concern remains the people skeptical about the vaccine. Amid reports of dose shortage, he said that the White House was in talks with the manufacturers to produce more shots. So far, 16.5 million shots have been administered.
