Newly-minted Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in their first joint interview promise a national strategy on the pandemic on day one and they discuss what will happen if a second wave occurs with ABC News 'World Tonight' anchor David Muir and 'Good Morning America' co-host Robin Roberts. Biden said that as president, he would shut the country down to stop the spread of COVID-19 if the move was recommended to him by scientists.
"I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists," Biden said. "I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving, until we control the virus."
"That is the fundamental flaw of this administration's thinking to begin with," Biden continued. "In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus."
