During ABC’s “The View” broadcast, Biden was asked, “Are you at all concerned, as [President Donald] Trump said, that we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself?”
He gave a confusing answer about whether he thought the cure could be worse than the disease.
“We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what. No matter what,” Biden responded. “We know what has to be done … We’ve got to flatten that curve and we’ve got to make sure that once, in fact, we have this under control, it doesn’t come back.”
He further explained that first responders required more “gear,” and hospitals are in need of “extra beds” in urban areas.
Biden then said that rural America is lacking essential materials, saying, have a map here — I won’t show you, you can’t see it.”
“We have to get help there,” Biden said.
“We should be focusing on surging data, surging equipment, surging testing, surging all this information and all this capability around the country. That’s the first and foremost thing we should be doing instead of waiting around.”
