By the time the corona vaccine is available, two more lakh may die: Biden

Democratic Party leader Joe Biden, who won the US presidential election, said that by the time the global vaccine against the coronavirus pandemic virus was available, about two million people could die in the country.

Biden said Monday, “Corona kills an average of about a thousand people in the country every day, and 240,000 people have died from the disease to date. It is estimated that the corona vaccine is widespread. And 200,000 people could die in the coming months.”

On the previous Sunday, Biden described the fight against the coronavirus epidemic as a priority for his administration and said the new U.S. administration would set up a team of experts to advise on bans, masking and other measures.

So far, 99,68,015 people have been infected and 2,37,568 people have been killed by the epidemic in the United States, the country hardest hit by corona. More than a million new infections have been identified in the United States in the past 24 hours.
