President Biden speaks on COVID-19 response, signs executive orders

CBS, 22 Jan 2021
President Joe Biden spoke about his administration’s COVID-19 response, a day after his inauguration. He also signed 10 executive orders as part of his strategy to combat the coronavirus pandemic, which has now claimed 400,000 American lives.

The administration’s plan aims to vastly expand testing and vaccine availability, reopen the majority of schools in the next 100 days and administer 100 million vaccine doses by the end of April. But, much of the plan will be impossible if Congress doesn't pass Mr. Biden’s nearly $2 trillion coronavirus proposal.
