In an interview with ABC News' David Muir, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that he was "prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives, because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus," including shutting the country down if deemed necessary by scientists.

"That is the fundamental flaw of this administration's thinking to begin with. In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus," so Biden. "I would shut it down. I would listen to the scientists."
