The Democratic presidential candidate was seen shaking hands upon his arrival in Wisconsin. Mr Biden took the precaution of wearing a face mask but did not wear gloves as he departed a plane in Kenosha. 

The Democrat nominee for the 2020 US Presidential election is 77-years old.

Due to his age Mr Biden is classed as high risk in regards to COVID-19. 

If Joe Biden wins the election he would be the oldest president in American history, Mr Biden will be 78-years-old when he takes office.

The US has more than 6,300,000 COVID-19 cases in total and the official death toll in America stands at over 190,000 people.

Additionally, over 3,500,000 people have recovered from the coronavirus in the US. 

Earlier week a US political commentator told Donald Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis in America over the coming months will be crucial in deciding the result of the 2020 US Presidential election.

Jadan Horyn stated the coronavirus pandemic will be a liability on President Trump’s election campaign but reopening the economy will be a factor in his favour.

He added that decreasing COVID-19 cases and a healthy economy will hurt the Democrats’ chances of defeating the US President. 

Mr Horyn said: “I think for Americans having a country with this wild west media we get to see what coronavirus actually does to a country with 325 million people, that is massive and has different layers of Government and accountability.

“So it will absolutely be a liability on the President, how it is handled and an increase or decrease in cases going into the election will make all the difference.

“Our cases numbers are down significantly from where they were, if that trend continues it will put us in mid-October where we were three or four months ago.

“I don’t know if the media are going to cover that because they won’t want to give the President credit but that will be a factor.

“The economy reopening will also be a factor, that could play in the President’s favour.

“There are somethings that I do believe that are outside the scope of the narrative either party would want.

“Increasing cases would hurt the President and the Republicans and decreasing cases and a healthy economy in general would hurt the Democrats no matter what they are saying.”
