Joe Biden says coronavirus lockdown would NOT be necessary 'if we wear masks' at Town Hall event

JOE Biden said millions of lives would be saved and the country would not go through a lockdown if everyone simply wore masks.

"If you wear this mask, you would save more lives in the time until we have a vaccine," Biden said at Thursday night's town hall that aired on ABC with George Stephanopoulos.

"If we wear masks," the Democratic presidential nominee said. "we could save over 100,000 lives."

The former vice president blasted the president for not doing enough to save the more than 210,000 Americans who had died due to Covid-19.

"Trump talks about things that aren't accurate," Biden said in regards to the potential coronavirus vaccine. "If we wear masks, we could save more lives."

Biden also said the United States could have avoided a shutdown if the federal government had adhered to the scientific community in March.

"I said follow the science," Biden told Stephanopoulos. "I don't think a lockdown is needed."
