Democratic White House hopeful Joe Biden on Monday attacked President Donald Trump, his rival in the November 3 elections, for stating that there is no need to be “afraid” of the coronavirus, that leaves more than 200,000 dead in the country.
“I saw a tweet he made, they showed me, he said ‘Don’t let the covid control your life’ “, declared Biden to the Local 10 news station in Florida, while campaigning in that state considered key to winning the November 3 elections.

“Let him say that to the 205,000 families who lost someone,” he said, referring to the deaths – which now exceed 210,000 – due to the coronavirus in the country, the worst affected in the world in absolute terms by the pandemic, although Trump downplays the severity of the disease.

Biden continued to speak about the issue Monday at an outdoor event in Miami, where he criticized the Republican president for ignoring the use of masks to prevent infections.
I hope the President, after he’s been through what he’s been through, and I’m glad he looks like he’s doing pretty well, will deliver the right lesson to the American people: Masks matter.
“I hope the president, after he’s been through what he’s been through, and I’m glad he seems to be doing pretty well, will deliver the right lesson to the American people: masks matter,” Biden said.
“These masks are important. They matter, they save lives, they prevent the spread of disease “, emphasized.

Biden spoke just minutes after Trump was released from the Walter Reed Military Medical Center outside Washington, where he was interned since Friday, and the chinstrap was removed, defiantly, just reaching the White House.
“Don’t let it dominate your life, get out there, be careful,” the president said in a video on Twitter. “I hope nobody goes away thinking that this is not a problem. It is a serious problem,” said the Democratic candidate.
Biden confronted Trump in a chaotic debate last Wednesday, two days before the president announced his positive diagnosis for covid-19.
The pandemic, which in addition to the health crisis caused a recession in the world’s leading power, is one of the main concerns of voters, according to public opinion polls.
