Former Vice President Joe Biden was given the first opportunity to tell the American people what he would do to combat the coronavirus at tonight's Democratic debate.
The self-described democratic socialist won four of the six delegates, while Biden won the other two, according to the Associated Press, which also reported that Biden's lead is now shrunk to 154 delegates.
Later on in the debate, Biden continued to cough just a bit.
Sanders argues his single-payer health care system would provide free treatment for those diagnosed with COVID-19. "It is unacceptable for him to be blabbering with unfactual information which is confusing the general public".
Sanders said if he were president he would make sure no one has to pay for coronavirus testing or treatment.
Biden, 77, said he "fortunately" doesn't have any underlying conditions to worry about, and like Sanders, has asked his staff to work from home.
"It is not working in Italy right now, and they have a single-payer system", Biden said.
"Mini Tuesday is a crushing blow to the Sanders campaign and other progressive candidates that thought that the county was finally ready for them", said Brandon Henry. Sanders acknowledged Biden has won more states but says to defeat Trump "you have to bring young people, who are not great voters". Biden later said he also believes no one should have to pay.
Biden said his campaign staff was also working from home and that he was washing his hands "God knows how many times" per day and using hand sanitizer nearly as much.
Saturday was the first time Sanders had a bigger delegate day than Biden since Nevada's caucuses on February 22.
Biden recounted his experience as vice president in President Barack Obama's administration in dealing with the Ebola outbreak in 2014.
"The first thing we've got to do, whether or not I'm president, is to shut this president up right now", Sanders said from CNN's studios in Washington, D.C.
Biden also steps on the stage as the front-runner in a race dramatically different from the party's last debate less than three weeks ago, following cascading wins that started with his resounding victory in the SC primary. She and Sanders have been allies on the party's left wing, and many of his supporters called on her to back Sanders as he fights to revive his campaign after moderates coalesced around Biden. With 89 delegates, Washington had the second-largest delegate count of the evening.

The cabins had not yet been sanitized at that point, and CDC researchers said it was too early to draw conclusions from the data. At the Grand Princess , crew members were likely infected on Trip A and then transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to passengers on Trip B.
