Democratic Party's presidential candidate Joe Biden says his top concern is to get control of the virus

The Democratic Party's presidential candidate Joe Biden said his "first step" if elected president of the United States would be to "get control of the virus that has ruined so many lives".

Speaking at the Democratic National Convention, Biden said:

 "We will never get our economy back on track, we will never get our kids back in schools, we will never have our lives back until we deal with this virus."

His plan to contain the pandemic included developing and deploying rapid tests, bolstering the supply of protective gear and instituting a national mandate for masks.

Biden also offered a withering assessment of Donald Trump's response to the pandemic: 

"Our current president has failed in his most basic duty to the nation: he has failed to protect us."
