Democratic rivals attack Donald Trump's coronavirus responses

Both u. s. Democratic presidential candidates on Thursday lashed out at US President Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus outbreak as woefully insufficient to this point, and put forth their own plans for handling the pandemic.

In a speech delivered from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, frontrunner Joe Biden said the Trump administration has to this point shown itself unable to address the unfolding crisis.

"No president can promise to stop future outbreaks, but I can promise you this, when I'm president we are going to be better prepared, respond better and recover better," Biden said. "We will lead with science, hear the experts, [we] will heed their advice. We'll build American leadership and rebuild it to rally the globe to satisfy the world threats that we are likely to face again."

Biden cautioned that the virus, which some Trump allies have dismissed as overblown fodder for the president's critics, "does not have a political affiliation". And in an exceedingly direct dig at Trump, he added another pledge: "I'll always tell you the reality. this can be the responsibility of a president. that is what is owed the American people."

Biden released a close plan, which he said Trump is "welcome to adopt", that demanded wide availability of free testing, free preventive care and treatment of the disease related to the virus, COVID-19. The plan also demanded rapid development of a vaccine, and full deployment of the mandatory supplies, personnel and facilities to stem the outbreak.

The former vice chairman also pressed for economic measures to mitigate the impact of the outbreak, including offering emergency paid leave for all those impacted by the coronavirus, assistance for tiny businesses and employees who are affected, and debt relief for homeowners and students with loans they'll not be able to pay within the short term.

Federal resources, he said, should be mobilised to confirm a minimum of 10 testing sites in every state, and federal aid - including from the Pentagon - should be provided to place a stand-up hospital in any US city where an epidemic exceeds the capacity of existing healthcare infrastructure.

Biden also pledged that his administration would hold daily briefings in any such crisis, with top public health professionals before of cameras to handle the state directly.

Speaking just a pair hours later, Sanders said Trump should declare a national emergency and said a hotline should be established for people seeking information about the virus. He also said the US was at a "major disadvantage" compared with other countries since many folks don't have any medical insurance.

Sanders has advocated for fully government-financed healthcare under a Medicare for All system that's the centrepiece of his campaign. But he said Thursday that within the meantime during the outbreak, the govt. must make sure that, "Everyone must be able to get all of the healthcare that they have without cost." He added that if a vaccine for the virus is developed, it should be free.

"We need an emergency response to the emergency," Sanders said, "and we'd like it immediately."

Biden and Sanders have both cancelled public events prior to of next Tuesday's primaries, yielding to public health officers and elected officials who are discouraging large campaign rallies. The pair will meet in an exceedingly debate Sunday night on CNN, without a live audience, which organisers on Thursday said they were moving from Arizona to Washington, DC to minimise travel for the candidates and their staff.
