WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 31st July, 2021) The Biden Administration does not plan to introduce a new range of the coronavirus lockdown measures despite the recent surge of cases of the Delta variant, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Friday.
"We have the tools in our tool belt to fight this [Delta] variant, and we are not going to head towards a lockdown. We want to make sure that we're doing everything that we can, because after passing the historic rescue plan, we have the resources to make sure that [lockdown] does not happen," Jean-Pierre said at a press briefing.
