So, why 1.9 trillion? Roughly 400 billion for combat Covid-19 (vaccines, testing), around $1 trillion for relief to families (including stimulus payments) and approx. $440 billion to help businesses (12/12)

8. Paid sick leave - the plan would support granting access to paid sick leave so people who are sick don’t feel the pressure to go to work due to financial constraints. (11/12)

6. Address supply shortages - $30 billion to the Disaster Relief Fund to help make sure there’s enough PPE - something we know that has continued to be in short supply. (8/12)

6. Invest in more treatments and make them more available - we have seen a number of effective treatments developed, but some have lacked accessibility or are not being used adequately. (9/12)

7. Help schools open safely - I have spoken about how hard this decision has been for me as a parent. @JoeBiden 's plan wants to provide $130 billion to provide schools to help with things like reducing class size and improving ventilation. (10/12)

This money would also go toward making sure schools could test regularly. (5/12)

3. Identify and address emerging variant strains - The US has not been doing enough sequencing to look for new mutations, so this proposal includes funding to dramatically increase: sequencing, surveillance and outbreak analytics (6/12)

4. Provide additional support to vulnerable populations in congregate settings - they are proposing funding to “deploy strike teams to long-term care facilities experiencing Covid-19 outbreaks.” They also want to offer support to prisons. (7/12)

He strongly believes that 100 million doses can be administered in 100 days -- even without additional vaccines. (3/12)

2. Scale up testing - I’ve made it clear we aren’t doing enough testing. He wants to invest $50 billion to ramp up efforts including providing funds to purchase rapid tests for asymptomatic people (surveillance testing). (4/12)

1. Mount a national vaccination program - we all know it’s not going as quickly as planned. He wants to invest $20 billion in a national program that would include community vaccination centers and mobile vaccination units. (2/12)

President-elect @JoeBiden is about to present his $1.9 trillion #COVID19 relief plan. Let’s look at some of the key points: (1/12)

One final note: kudos to @drsanjaygupta for intentionally referring to me and Jessi as "doctor". A great example of using his tremendous platform to set an example of #heforshe. It does not go unnoticed.
