COVID Blame Game going to Shift under Biden Admin?

Not that I want anyone to die, but if there is no vaccine there is a good chance the attached shows what will happen. The plot just extrapolates the current time history of COVID deaths into the future.

Biden will assume responsibility for over 500,000 American deaths before the end of his second year. He is the one that has promised to "stamp it out" so seems fair he should own it by then.

I assumed "something" would happen to reduce the death rate next summer (thus the change in the slope of the orange line).

Questions:
-You Dems good with Biden taking blame?
-Will the media still report total COVID deaths or will they report Trump deaths and Biden deaths?
-Will the media still blame Trump for the whole thing anyway and attribute no deaths to Biden?

What's going to be incredibly different about the way Biden, as opposed to Trump, would handle COVID is very simple: he's actually going to try to handle it. Trump tried to pretend it didn't exist, then kept claiming it would disappear, then turned mask-wearing into a culture war, then kicked the matter to the individual states so he could blame them for anything that happened - while incidentally tweeting "Free Michigan!" when the governor tried a lockdown. And by and large he seemed to resent having to compete with the virus for attention, and pretty much acted irritated all the time we kept bothering him about it. And oh, yeah, he seethed with jealousy about all the good pub his infectious-disease expert was getting because Trump and only Trump is allowed to command center stage.

Whereas I suspect Biden will just, you know, roll out a reasonably intelligent plan and then try to implement it, and probably without trying to incite insurrections in states that have major breakouts.

The way Trump handled COVID was a disaster and a disgrace, and anybody who tries to defend it is a partisan moron. Sorry. It's hard to be more inept than Trump was over the thing.

Trump handled it fine for people who were actually paying attention, could read, and weren’t looking for a scapegoat. Others require a nanny state I guess.

Understood and actually agree with some of that.

But, I am assuming COVID is as vicious and tricky as it seems to be, which means in practical terms, there's not a lot that can be done to reduce deaths beyond what has been happening (wash hands, masks, distancing). Of course, other than a complete in-home lockdown.

Massive testing will identify cases and isolate them to stop the spread. Trump made masks a political statement and far too many people followed his lead in refused to wear them. If everyone wore a mask for 6 weeks the virus would die out.

Biden will say he “inherited this mess from Trump” and “look how bad Europe’s doing now.” I’m actually looking forward to seeing his expertise in action.

Nope, still blaming Trump and the GOP. "All lives matter!" (except people who die from covid)

is already in the ready to head out and set up administration sites. This will happen Q1 of next year and Biden will reap all of the benefits when it is accomplished. When really, it was the Trump Admin that got it all set up and prepared.

I thought Biden was going to just stop the virus altogether?

Biden is going to wrangle that Corn Pop coronavirus by the neck, and say "Listen here, man, you've got to stop this malarkey" - and all will be well, and we'll live happily ever after....??
