Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, said that governors should mandate masks for the next three months to help save lives in the coronavirus pandemic.

Following a briefing received by Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, Biden made a series of statements on the importance of wearing masks. He said that wearing masks would save 40,000 lives.

“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months as a minimum. Look, this is America. Be a patriot. Protect your fellow citizens. Step up. Do the right thing,” he said.

Biden also discussed their plan for the pandemic should they be elected in November in a new campaign ad, “To fix the economy, we have to get control over the virus. I’m releasing a plan to save lives in the months ahead. We need to increase federal support for testing, doubling the number of drive-through testing sites. We absolutely need a clear message from the very top of our federal government that everyone needs to wear a mask in public.”

Cases have passed 5 million in the United States and 166,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus.
