We can almost taste it, can’t we? The end of this wretched pandemic and the cursed virus that brought it about may just be months away at this point, as COVID-19 vaccines continue to roll out around the globe.
This has been a long 10 months of semi-solitude and worry, both about our health and our finances. The nature of this viral pandemic has caused a great many small businesses to close, and gutted the restaurant and live entertainment industries. There is the potential for a major boom in the economy with a swift rollout of these vaccines, but, thus far, that’s been easier said than done.
Now, just hours after Joe Biden was inaugurated, one of the world’s most logistically sophisticated companies is offering to lend a hand.
“As you begin your work leading the country out of the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon stands ready to assist you in reaching your goal of vaccinating 100 million Americans in the first 100 days of your administration,” Dave Clark, CEO of Amazon’s worldwide consumer business, wrote in a letter to Biden Wednesday.
“We are prepared to leverage our operations, information technology and communications capabilities and expertise to assist your administration’s vaccination efforts,” Clark continued. “Our scale allows us to make a meaningful impact immediately in the fight against Covid-19, and we stand ready to assist you in this effort.”
Fox News reached out to Amazon for en explanation as to why such an offer wasn’t made during Donald Trump’s time in office. As of this writing, no response has been received.
