Joe Biden Coronavirus Adviser Urges National Lockdown for ‘4 to 6 Weeks’

“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments. We could do all of that,” he said.“If we did that, then we could lock down for four-to-six weeks.”Osterholm claimed that would help get the virus under control, “like they did in New Zealand and Australia.”In August, Osterholm said the state-led lockdowns did not go far enough.“The problem with the March-to-May lockdown was that it was not uniformly stringent across the country. For example, Minnesota deemed 78 percent of its workers essential,” he wrote in the New York Times, along with Minneapolis Federal Reserve President Neel Kashkari.“To be effective, the lockdown has to be as comprehensive and strict as possible.”
