Despite the impact that the cold storm had on the United States on the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, for the inhabitants of the country, the work of the government of President Joe Biden in this regard has been positive.
The most recent survey of Axios / Ipsos revealed that 63% of the 1,029 consulted trust the ability of the Democratic administration to provide the highest possible availability to the doses against the pandemic.
Likewise, the numbers showed that 56% of those interviewed were optimistic for the government to make quick and safe decisions for the soon return to face-to-face classes.
On the overall handling of the outbreak, 45% of those surveyed said they have seen improvements in how the Democratic administration has dealt with the problem. The number is much higher than the 26% who made the claim in the last week of Republican Donald Trump’s government.
Coincidentally, that same number is the one that covers those who assure that Biden is making things worse.
Over the weekend it was confirmed that the number of deaths in the United States from complications related to the pandemic exceeded 500,000; however, a good part of those surveyed distrust the figures.
According to the study, 35% indicated that the number of casualties is greater than the official one; 31% consider that there are fewer deaths from COVID-19, while 33% revealed that they remain on the side of government data.
The United States surpassed half a million deaths from covid-19 on Monday, a fatal record that no other country in the world comes close to. After 5:00 pm local eastern time, the independent count of Johns Hopkins University registered 500,071 deaths from the virus and 28,174,133 infections.
This Monday night, when the official figure was approaching half a million, Joe Biden maintained a moment of silence and a candle-lighting ceremony at the White House, accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris.
“That’s more lives lost to this virus than any other nation on Earth,” Biden said. “But by recognizing the scale of this massive death in America, we remember each person and the life they lived.”
The event recalled scenes from almost exactly a month ago, on the eve of Biden’s inauguration, when he and Harris called a vigil for the victims of the coronavirus at the Lincoln Memorial.
Early Monday, Biden ordered all American flags to fly at half mast for the rest of the week, in remembrance of the lives lost. The Biden administration’s continued focus on the deadly impact of the pandemic stands in stark contrast to President Trump, who repeatedly downplayed the severity of the virus and seemed unwilling to lead Americans to suffer.
