Biden: Virus cases mounting, economy needs help

United States President Joe Biden warned on Friday that cases of COVID-19 in the US are "mounting" and that experts now expect 600,000 people to die from the disease.

Speaking ahead of signing executive orders on economic relief, Biden said that families are going hungry, people are being evicted and job losses are mounting as a result of the pandemic.

The president noted that the pandemic is a national emergency and that everyone needs to start acting like it, stressing "If we act now, the economy will be stronger" in both the short-run and the long-run.
