In absolute terms, the United States is the most bereaved country in the world by the pandemic, but not in relative terms. The wearing of the mask, which, if it were generalized, could prevent an additional 130,000 deaths according to a study, has become a subject of political dispute.

His Democratic opponent Joe Biden also pledged on Friday that the vaccine would be "free for everyone" if he won the November 3 presidential election.
