U.S. President-elect Joe Biden warned that President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to accept the outcome of the 2020 election could hamper the incoming Biden administration’s ability to rapidly distribute a coronavirus vaccine.

  According to Biden, “more people may die” without a coordinated fight on COVID-19.

He stated this while speaking to reporters in Wilmington, when asked what is the greatest threat from Trump blocking a smooth transfer of power.

“More people may die if we don’t coordinate on issues like distributing vaccines to Americans as quickly as possible.

“If we have to wait until (inauguration day) January 20 to start that planning, it puts us behind for a month, a month and a half,” Biden said.

“And so it’s important that there be coordination now — now, or as rapidly as we can get that done.”

According to Associated Press, Biden has won the 2020 US election with his current 290 college votes, which have since crossed the required 270.
