Biden says he won’t hold rallies during pandemic

US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says he will not hold campaign rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, drawing a stark contrast with President Donald Trump, who has already held large campaign gatherings.

“This is the most unusual campaign I think in modern history,” the former vice president says during a rare question-and-answer session with reporters in Delaware to discuss the pandemic and ways to mitigate the spread.

“I’m going to follow the doc’s orders — not just for me but for the country — and that means that I am not going to be holding rallies,” says Biden, who added that he has not yet been tested for the coronavirus.
