The US president-elect Joe Biden has told CNN that it was his “inclination” that, on his inauguration, he would ask the public to wear masks for the first 100 days of his administration to help drive down the spread of the virus.
Biden said he would issue an order for masks to be worn inside federal buildings and in transportation facilities.
