New President Asks People to Wear Masks – level 1

27-01-2021 15:00

Donald Trump ends his job as the US president. The new president is Joe Biden. Biden wants to fight with the coronavirus better.

Biden asks people to wear face masks for 100 days. Masks are very important. They stop the spread of the coronavirus. Masks are more important than vaccines. It is possible that 100,000 people will die from COVID-19 in February in the US. If people wear masks, the number can be lower.

Biden says that Trump does not work well. Trump does not stop the virus. Biden wants to get more medicine to sick people. He wants to get vaccines faster. People who come to the US must not have COVID-19. They must show a negative test.

Difficult words: spread (when something moves around a place), vaccine (a shot that stops a person from getting a disease), negative test (when doctors check if somebody is sick or not and the result is that the person is not sick).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
