Joe Biden has claimed that he would not have another nation wide lock down, according to The Daily Wire.

“The answer was I would follow the science. I am not going to shut down the economy, period. I’m going to shut down the virus. … I’ll say it again.”

“No national shutdown. No. National. Shutdown. Because every region, every area, every community can be different. And so there’s no circumstance which I can see that would require a total national shutdown. I think that would be counterproductive.”

“In a state … where the infection rate is not as high, you can have a gymnasium open. It’s another thing to say it can only be open four hours a day with X number of people.”

“The church I go to, … they don’t allow more than 40% of the people to come into the church. Those are rational decisions. It’s not shutting down everything. It’s calibrating based on what the threat is.”

“We’re about to go into a dark winter, a dark winter, and he [Trump] has no clear plan, and there’s no prospect that there’s gonna be a vaccine available for the majority of the American people before the middle of next year.”

Trump said, “I don’t think we’re gonna have a dark winter at all.”

“We’re opening up our country, we’ve learned and studied and understand the disease, which we didn’t at the beginning.”

“Europe imposed draconian lockdowns and yet their cases are exploding, their deaths are surging and their economies are in ruins. We had the smallest down and the largest up on the economy, by far.”

“The European lockdowns are leading to more suffering, delayed medical care and financial devastation. A vote for Biden is a vote for lockdowns, layoffs, misery and getting rid of your Second Amendment.”

“If you want a vaccine to kill the virus, a job to support your family and freedom to live your life, then cast your vote for me.”

Biden said that businesses can be opened or shut down based on the situation in their respective states.

During the final presidential debate, Biden warned of a coming “dark winter” while Trump denounced lockdowns and expressed optimism.

Trump, on the other hand, stressed that America needs to open up its economy, children need to go back to school, and restaurants need to get back to operating capacity.
