Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Urges States to Restore Mask Mandates as Covid Cases Rise” – below is their description.

The Biden administration struck sharply divergent notes Monday on the nation’s fight against Covid-19, celebrating a significant ramp-up in vaccinations while also warning of the “impending doom” of sharply rising case numbers among those yet to be immunized.

President Joe Biden, speaking at the White House, unveiled his new “90-90” plan, saying that 90% of U.S. adults will be eligible to get a Covid-19 shot by April 19, and 90% of the nation will live within five miles of a vaccination site as his administration more than doubles the number of participating pharmacies.
