US President Joe Biden urged Congress to prepare for a new pandemic and plan a budget

US President Joe Biden urged Congress to prepare for a new pandemic and plan a budget, given the consequences of the coronavirus. The politician stated this during a speech on the use of the COVID-19 vaccine for children under five years of age.

“Ultimately, we need more money, not only for vaccines for children. We need more money to plan for a second pandemic. There will be another pandemic. We must think ahead. That’s why we need money,” the American leader said.


In March, the White House called on the US Congress for an additional $22.5 billion to fight COVID-19. The funds will be used to purchase vaccines and provide the healthcare system with everything necessary. Biden administration officials fear that they will soon face a new wave of coronavirus infection.
