US COVID-19 deaths top WWII fatalities, President Biden warns worst yet to come

United States President Joe Biden warns Americans that the worst of the Coronavirus pandemic is yet to come, as the number of deaths in the country due to the virus has surpassed American deaths in World War II.

The US remains the worst-hit country all over the world with around a fifth of the two million global COVID-19 deaths. President Biden has made fighting the pandemic the new administration’s top priority.

At his inauguration, Joe Biden said, “We need all our strength to persevere through this dark winter. We’re entering what may be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus.”

Coordinator of the COVID-19 response in the Biden administration, Jeffrey Zients said that the US will rejoin the World Health Organization, revoking the Trump administration’s decision.

WHO assistant director-general Mariangela Simao said, “No one needs to panic, because you’re going to get a vaccine.”
