All Eyes on Wall Street Will Be On Biden’s Prime-Time Covid Address

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “All Eyes on Wall Street Will Be On Biden’s Prime-Time Covid Address” – below is their description.

ay a year ago when the spread of coronavirus forced Americans into isolation, swiftly collapsing the economy and portending more than a half-million deaths.

Biden’s prime-time remarks will acknowledge the personal and collective struggles of the past 12 months while looking ahead to a more promising future in which enough of the U.S. population is vaccinated to minimize the risk of the virus.

“I’m going to talk about what comes next,” Biden said Wednesday. “I’m going to launch the next phase of the Covid response and explain what we will do as a government and what we will ask of the American people. There is light at the end of this dark tunnel.”

The date of March 11, 2020, will remain seared in the national memory as a moment when the peril of Covid-19 hit home. The World Health Organization declared a pandemic, the National Basketball Association suspended its season and actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, announced they’d been infected.

Biden’s presidential campaign, riding high after a string of primary victories that made him a near-lock for the Democratic nomination, began to consider how to address the pandemic. With then-President Donald Trump downplaying the threat, Biden was able to mount politically damaging attacks and present a more sober vision of what lay ahead.
