LIVE: Biden’s ‘Summer of Joy’ Turns Grim as Delta Infections Skyrocket | Top News

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Biden’s ‘Summer of Joy’ Turns Grim as Delta Infections Skyrocket | Top News” – below is their description.

(July 28) President Joe Biden promised a “summer of joy” on July 4 as he declared America’s independence from Covid-19. Three weeks later that sense of victory is evaporating in the face of a resurgent pandemic.

The U.S. now faces a surge in cases fueled by vaccine holdouts and the highly transmissible delta variant, prompting the federal government and companies on Tuesday to weigh mandatory vaccinations of workers and a return to widespread mask-wearing.

That reversal of fortune could bring back restrictions many Americans had hoped were gone for good — a bitter setback for Biden, who has counted on defeating the pandemic as a cornerstone of the nation’s economic recovery.
