Joe stepped in it.
He admitted during the debate that he WILL consider more shutdowns.
President Trump has famously said that the cure cannot be worse than the virus itself.
But Biden is willing to take on draconian measures to "fight" the virus.
However, even the World Health Organization has said that shutdowns should NOT be the primary method to fight against COVID-19.
Here's Biden admitting he will consider shutting down the country:
Trump wants the country to remain open.
People should have the FREEDOM to make their own choice to go to work safely.
Biden even claims that he doesn't want unemployment to rise.
Another lockdown would result in more layoffs.
More lockdowns would force businesses to close.
According to CNBC, even the World Health Organization, says that lockdowns should be a last resort:
As Europe introduces more and more restrictive measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, the leader of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) office in the region has said that full-scale lockdowns should be a “very, very last resort.”
“A proportional and targeted response is the way forward. Measures or tightening up in many countries in Europe ... are appropriate and necessary responses to what the data is telling us,” Dr. Hans Kluge, WHO’s regional director for Europe, said Thursday.
“It is never too late (to tighten measures) but of course, definitely, we are concerned. In general, this is the time to step up the restrictive measures ... with lockdowns as a very, very last resort. We know much better than in March what can, and needs, to be done.”
Kluge cited models that suggested a far greater and generalized adherence to mask-wearing and strict controls on social gathering in both public and private spaces could save up to 281,000 lives by February 2021 across 53 countries that come under WHO Europe’s regional office.
“The pandemic won’t reverse its course on its own, but we will,” he said, praising moves by governments around Europe to tighten Covid-19 restrictions. “We need to be uncompromising,” he said as he called for a “systematic and generalized” adherence to the basic measures of mask-wearing and social distancing.
“These measures are meant to keep us all ahead of the curve and to flatten its course ... Any further escalation of measures would be the result of failure in complying with the preceding ones, it is therefore up to us to accept them while they are still relatively easy to follow,” he said.
Asked whether he is for or against nationwide lockdowns, he reiterated that the pandemic of today “is not the same as the pandemic of yesterday” both in terms of the transmission dynamic, but also in the ways that governments can tackle it.
President Trump, on the other hand, has led Operation Warpspeed, which will likely result in the fastest vaccine ever brought to the public.
However, Joe Biden is open to shutting down the country... AGAIN!
President Trump wants people to make responsible decisions for themselves!
