(UnitedVoice.com) – Despite President Joe Biden’s promises to “end” the coronavirus when he took office, it continues to be a problem in the US. The new POTUS is learning that the deadly, highly-infectious virus can’t just be wished away. Fortunately, the US military is continuing the work they began under former President Donald Trump’s leadership.
According to reports, active-duty military members are working with the medical staff at the hardest hit hospitals in the country to help out. At Adventist Health White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles, more than 120 troops are working alongside the doctors and nurses to save lives.
In addition to helping medical staff, the military is deploying to aid in vaccination distribution.
This just in from @barbarastarrcnn who reports the Pentagon and FEMA are negotiating the final terms of an agreement that could see the military provide around 450,000 Covid-19 vaccinations a day. Some 10,000 troops would be deployed at 100 vaccination centers across the U.S.

The deployments to help hospitals began during the Trump administration and have continued into Biden’s term. In April, the 45th president said that he was sending a “tremendous amount of military to help” the hospitals across the country. Now, as medical facilities struggle to meet demand, those service members are more important than ever.
