Simple poll I've decided to create. Do you think Biden will do a better job containing the virus?

I think that's why a lot of people voted for him, because of what's going on and how trump handled the virus situation. To be honest, why would Trump take a drug that doesn't even treat it for starters that actually has risk factors to make you sicker? As prescribed by his wacko-doctor.

Yes he will, no he won't, or it will be about the same. Please explain why you chose your answer below.

No, Biden won't do anything better because Trump already had things set into place and Biden is just finishing the carrying out of those procedures. There is nothing new that Biden can do that isn't already being done so he's not going to make it any better. Biden even admitted that nothing can change the trajectory of the virus. He's a politician who likes to make promises in order to get elected.

Apparently he is making up the mistake by Trump of securing more vaccines. So I guess the answer already is yes.

I thought Trump secured a good amount of vaccines in the time he had in office because at first we were told that there was no way Trump could have a vaccine before the end of 2020...and boy were they wrong about that. The companies went as quickly as they could so it's not like Trump failed us on that.

As is abundantly clear at this juncture, what we are dealing with is endemic not a pandemic and that genie will not be put back in the bottle. Much like influenza, we will see it forever on a rotating basis until a vaccine is developed.

As such, there is really nothing Biden can do or could have done which could have prevented this or mitigated it much. The only difference, perhaps, would be the associated timeline.

You're claiming failure because a vaccine that we didn't even know would work back in the summer of 202 wasn't ordered in a higher number? Isn't it easy to look back on something and do the shoulda, woulda, coulda? 100,000 million doses were ordered initially and if the vaccine had been a total failure then people would blame Trump for that too. Once the science came out to show that the vaccine was effective then 100,000 million more doses were ordered in December and again, that's WAY before the timeline that people said would never happen.

Think back before the election when Democrats were questioning the vaccine? Even Kamala said that if Trump said to take it she wouldn't.

I think he will handle it far better than what Trump already did. Donald wasted so much dollars on Hydroxychloroquine that has no potential effect on the COVID virus. Its almost the same as how nations stocked Oseltamivir during influenza.

Biden is more into science and technology than what Trump is into cosmic divinity. So, I have hope.

I'm a Brit so please take my view with a pinch of salt as I am not an American. My sources are effectively the news and my friend who lives in Virginia. But from looking at the way Trump took on Coronavirus - effectively dismissing it at points, talking about knocking back bleach and basically telling those wearing masks it was a waste of time - it wouldn't surprise me that people voted Biden in based on the fact he may at least have a more sensible (Depending on your viewpoint) Corona plan. Then again, Trump is the one in some respects who started the vaccine production (Warp speed or whatever it was called) and ordered in some vaccines. I'm not sure what else Biden can/could do but maybe order some more in and be more stable with his coronavirus plan.

Well, will you look at that?

A new study shows that the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine touted by former President Donald Trump increased the survival rate of severely ill coronavirus patients.

The observational study, published by medRxiv, found that antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, along with zinc, could increase the coronavirus survival rate by as much as nearly 200% if distributed at higher doses to ventilated patients with a severe version of the illness.

“We found that when the cumulative doses of two drugs, HCQ and AZM, were above a certain level, patients had a survival rate 2.9 times the other patients,” the study’s conclusion states.

It's almost like the media lied about Hydroxychloroquine's effectiveness to ensure a Trump defeat in November. Now that Trump's out there's less of an incentive to suppress the truth.

So far he's handling at least better then Trump did. But speaking of that I must say Trump actually was prescribed that by his wacko jacko doctor that is usually in the news. What doctor would prescribe something like that is beyond me. It actually does a lot of damage to the human body and it's not a good drug for ANYONE to take.

I can't say that the vaccine is going to end the issue but Biden at the very least is pushing towards to fight to rid us of it.

@TopSilver here's the thing, the study showed that Hydroxychloroquine improved patient odds for those infected with covid, by a significant margin. You say he had a "wacko jacko" doctor, however I wonder if his doctor had just read a study or two that most practitioners had not. There may have been earlier studies where Hydroxychloroquine was used in cases similar to Covid against other viruses that gave the doctor a belief that it would also work for Covid. We just don't know what his doctor's reasoning was, but it's not fair to assume that the reasoning behind letting Trump take this medicine was wacky.

Also, Hodroxychloroquine has a long history of being used safely and effectively. It was originally an anti-malaria drug but has been used for decades as a treatment for autoimmune diseases like lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogren's Syndrome. Here is more info on the safety of the drug for autoimmune disease patients:


From that article:

What are side effects of hydroxychloroquine?​

The side effects of taking hydroxychloroquine are limited for most patients, including those with autoimmune disease.

“In appropriate doses, hydroxychloroquine is so safe that the FDA has even approved it for children and pregnant women,” Dr. Buckner says.

Early on, patients may experience mild nausea. Long-term use of the drug can damage the retina and impair vision.

“But patients get regular eye exams, so we can catch and respond to these issues early,” Dr. Buckner explains. “I have patients who have taken hydroxychloroquine for 20 years with no problems.”

Hydroxychloroquine’s side effects in COVID-19 patients​

Adverse outcomes from the drug tend to result from taking it in large doses or for a long period of time, or from hydroxychloroquine’s interactions with other medications. This helps explain why some patients with COVID-19 have developed heart arrhythmias (unusual heart rhythms) and other issues in response to the drug.

Some patients were given large doses — much larger than what is prescribed for patients with lupus and other conditions. And COVID-19 patients are often in very poor health by the time they’re treated, with heart complications and other issues that people with autoimmune disease generally don’t have.

Trump was very good at picking up on an idea and showing interest in it, such as using Hydroxychloroquine against Covid-19, however Trump was very bad at articulating ideas he had heard in a way others could understand them, or attributing an idea to the proper source.

As far as the handling of Covid-19 goes, Trump at least explored multiple treatment options rather than putting all of his eggs in the vaccine basket. I'm not convinced that Biden has done anything beyond continue the vaccine rollout plan that Trump put in place or has even had an original idea that has not been spoon-fed to him.

@Entitled Stories I see where your coming from. But to me it would have to be last resort if there was nothing else you could do. It's not ever good to take something that can also harm you even though it may have beneficial effect. So I hope you can at least see where I'm coming from when I made that statement. I am a Republican myself (it appears you may also be), I just personally think that considering Trump took it was a bit odd to me. This was before the vaccine and lack of knowledge of the damage it could of done to him may have been the reasoning, who knows, and if it was I understand why. Just the fact that it does cause damage even though it could also help.

I just wanted to point out the keeping the peace is something Biden has done well. More-so getting vaccines to people that need it. Trump refused to pay for vaccine shipments right before his presidency ended and it delayed the shipments a decent amount. People like to pick on him because he didn't handle it the old fashioned way so that's also a factor in where most people would say Biden has done well. But he really has though it's probably nothing Trump couldn't have done at this point.

Well, to be frank both the president had different issues at hand. During Trumps tenure, when the pandemic ravaged the continent, not much was known about the virus and most of the medications were on trial basis. It was either hit or miss. There was no time to study in detail about the virus as millions were dying and whatever known anti viral treatment had to begin. Since then, lot have changed. Lot of studies have been done and vaccines were developed. Though our smart virus is mutating, vaccines are able to limit the fatalities and control the spread. But yes, Biden too has equal responsibility and will be under pressure until the virus is eradicated.

Of course he will handle the pandemic - and anything else - much, much better than that other corrupt and incompetent clown ever could.
the virus is eradicated.
The virus won't and can't be eradicated, we will have to learn to live with it and all future viruses and pandemics. You thought this pandemic was bad? Get ready for some more! We will only see more and tougher pandemics as the climate crisis worsens and if we continue to destroy our environment and mistreat our animals.

I don't actually want to get indulged in political spat, but being an outsider I feel that present govt is taking care of the issues quite well. Trump administration were not serious about this pandemic, and many useless and irrelevant comments were passed by President himself. Biden administration is much better in handling these deals.

I honestly think that he isn't much better than Trump, in how he is handling it. He's ticked off more government officials than Trump did. Trump atleast was aware of how he was presenting different things. Biden has gotten to the point where his mental state is failing, and you do not know what he may say, as he might loose his train of thought while telling what he is planning.
