Joe Biden pushes forward with plans for office


US President-elect Joe Biden is to make tackling the coronavirus pandemic his top priority following his win over Donald Trump, his team says.
Announcing the first steps in his transition plan, his team said there would be more testing and Americans would be asked to wear masks.
On Monday, Mr Biden is expected to name a 12-member coronavirus task force.
Mr Trump has yet to concede and Mr Biden’s win remains a projection as key states are still counting votes.
However, the Democrat is forging ahead with his plans for assuming power in January after major US networks called the election in his favour on Saturday.
That reportedly also includes a slew of executive orders – written orders issued by the president to the federal government that do not require congressional approval – aimed at reversing controversial Trump policies.
