WASHINGTON (AP) – Joe Biden told supporters in Pennsylvania that he misses closeness to voters on the campaign trail, but doesn’t want his actions to become “superfocused on contagion.” The observation seems to point to President Donald Trump, who was preparing to carry out three great acts in the next few hours as the coronavirus resurfaces.
At an event for driving attendees in Bristol, a Philadelphia suburb, Biden said, “I don’t like the idea of that much distance, but it is necessary.”
“We don’t want to be a super focus,” he added.
Trump will preside over events in North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin when the United States has reached a record of more than 83,000 infections in a single day, and the death toll reaches almost 224,000 according to the Johns Hopkins University count.
The president tweeted that the figures have been exaggerated.
An event in the White House rose garden in September was described as a “super focus” of contagion of the virus. About twenty people have contracted the virus since the act of September 26 in which the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett was announced to the Supreme Court.
