Can anyone convince me that Biden would have responded to the virus any better than Trump ? If so, describe how. Then I'll give him my vote?

Notice how NO ONE can explain with a rational, informed answer what Joe would have done better. Some can't even get their fact right about what they do know. One is oblivious to the fact that Trump stopped Travel from China in January or that it's a myth that Trump EVER called COVID-19 a hoax.

No, He & the DNC are just using the COVID-19 Hysteria out of politics to gain power.
WHO (World Health Org)just came out with a statement that reintroducing 70%-80% economic shutdowns aren't going to help as it exacerbate other factors that contributes to death with other ailments, depression, suicide, hunger, poverty... Sweden & Taiwan after closing their borders did not take the socialist approach of shutting down their economy as they knew COVID-19 isn't apocalyptic & the spreads will happen no matter how (D)s & partisan news media makes it apocalyptic while the young & healthy rarely affected keeps the economy stable. After 7 months more is known about COVID-19 & the 2.2 million deaths by June-July had been adverted.
From the beginning the experts were merely guessing & expressing their opinions, not everyone agrees. Those not agreeing with the popular consensus or in this case popular national media influenced consensus are being censored. Some cause of deaths that simply tested positive with COVID-19, but COVID-19 wasn't the cause of death are being counted as COVID-19 deaths inflating the Numbers that Doc Dan Erickson and many others were questioning, but were silenced through big tech's censorship. It take months to decades of research & data defending on the Type of disease before experts really have full knowledge of any new diseases. Bloodborne African diseases HIV & Ebola took 3-4 decades of research for experts to fully grasp mostly everything to know about these diseases & further research are on going as Ebola still has 95%-99% fatality rate. SARS & MERS never got those chance as they disappeared after 6 months of infectious outbreak occurred so any effort to create a vaccine simply stopped. There are related 4 well know harmless corona virus responsible for the common cold that infects children every mid fall through mid spring, but they aren't at the level of SARS/MERS to be used as vaccines.
Obama/Biden's Administration with Doctor Fauci & CDC Scientists at the helm proved that the bureaucracy they had in place then could not handle SARS-COV-2 spreading at this COVID-19 pandemic's magnitude. Thus current POTUS conceived a Task Force requiring Defense Dept. & Private Sector involvement was crucial. WHO should've taken the role of an International Pandemic Response Agency mobilized as soon as there's a large outbreak of an unknown disease infecting humans in a city to quarantine & study. WHO was late to gather Data & sound the Alarm for every country in the world to brace it self from a pandemic the world connected by travel & transport where every day life requires social interactions in close proximity was not prepared for. The Whole World Failed at Keeping COVID-19 out of their countries. CDC, NIH, HHS, & WHO all Failed, as governor Cuomo argued redirecting blame away from his bungled nursing homes orders. Cuomo could've prevented the COVID-EU from spreading south & west. POTUS prevented 2.2 million deaths by June or July 2020 CDC projection. It's October, death toll so far is around 200,000.
Prior to 03/15/20 when all partisan (D) news media anchors along with Doctor Fauci & other (lib) experts stated that Influenza should be looked at more than Wuhan Flu with Dr. Fauci assuring the public not to be alarmed on NEWSMAX aired in 01/21/20 & again emphasized the danger was miniscule in 02/17/20. In April, Dr. Fauci reverses his don't wear mask advice, only healthcare workers, questioned by many as it spreads from simply talking. CDC found COVID projection model was over estimated, Fauci mused 1 year quarantine late March, then mid May say the country needs to open as shutdown has grave irreputable consequences. De Blasio & (D) Health experts from Feb. to Mar. 15 were making tweets & speeches in small rallies against travel bans, social distancing & shutdowns. 02/02/20 NYC Health Commissioner Oxirus Barbot said, "There's NO REASON NOT" to take the subway, bus, go to restaurant, miss the annual Lunar parade or avoid any neighborhood because of coronavirus. 0302/20 De Blasio encouraged New Yorkers to go on with their lives & get out on town despite Coronavirus. 02/03/20 New York Times: "There is no reason why it is not safe to travel to China, The travel ban is unjust".
The POTUS was very honest with how he felt about how dangerous COVID-19 could be in the interview, but there was very little data about COVID-19 that they had proceeded without causing mass hysteria as all competent Heads of State, Monarch, & Generals would while working diligently hard to acquire data, vaccines, & therapeutics, provide disease control guidelines to all states. (D) obsession with impeachment preoccupied most governmental resources & wasted everyone's time.
The Trump Administration had operatives working behind the scene to try & get information drawing up plans in early January, if things got worst in Wuhan & spread out of Wuhan after CDC scientists were sent in Dec. 2019, but China refused help while (D)s defy & resist the Administration's mitigation guidelines. Travel restriction from & to China was declared before there was a confirmed case in the US. Andrew Cuomo didn't quarantine every international flight & sea vessels coming into New York when travel restrictions were announced in late January turning NY into an epicenter. Cuomo struggled deciding to shutting down schools & Subways unsanitary, until a month+ later. Cuomo tried to pull a fast one on the incumbent with the 40,000 Ventilators he was planning on hoarding stored in a NY warehouse to control the supply lines. Cuomo pushed back on Statewide Federal Quarantine & ordered Nursing homes to accept COVID-19+ patients where more than 1/2 of the mortality statistic comes from.
No One could've known about an "unknown" disease to infect humans that transmit from human to human simply by talking from people who weren't even showing signs of illness at the beginning stages & into a pandemic. A respiratory disease like COVID-19 can't really be contained absent of data on how fast & easily it spreads by 85% of infected people who never got ill or hospitalized (14.5%-14.95% are recovering) experiencing symptoms of a common cold for which the lightly infected & doctors overlooked it as just a cold, until an alarming number of hospitalized infected patients overwhelming the hospitals & 1/20 were dying weekly which prompted a Chinese doctor to look through a microscope ruling out the Africanized swine flu happening at the same time across China that started 3 months earlier. China took extraordinary measure when it was apparent how contagious the virus was, but it was too late as initially they focused on quarantining feverish people having acute symptoms which allowed the virus to spread out of Wuhan to the world through foreign tourist, diplomats & business travelers showing no signs of infection.
COVID-19 might be on the road of being as fatal as the 1918 Influenza or Spanish Flu (500 million infection 50 million death toll out of 1.8 Billion world population) which is very unlikely. COVID-19 can attempt to kill 50 million people only because there are 8 billion people in the world today, 4 1/2 times more than 100 years ago. 1918 Influenza didn't care whether you're young, old, sick, or healthy while COVID-19 mostly victimizes the old & the sickly.
Once in a hundred years there's a pandemic that mankind can't fully prevent or control at anytime. Micro plastic, Trans Fat, Hard Narcotics, Tobacco, THC Vaping, Weed, Sugars, & MSG (Ajinomoto) are somehow weakening our immunity from Single Cell Bacterial Viruses that's been mutating for billions of years of evolution. Viral outbreak seems to pop up where large flocks, herds, & communities are densely packed. Every living thing (Animal, Plant, Fungi) on the planet has some sort of disease for billions of years. As mankind converts 85% of the planet's forest cover for human use: cultivation, roads, & development: entertainment, settlement, warehouse, airports... diseases have nowhere to go but where humans are to survive.

Being that during his time as VP they had a playbook to deal with such an event, I reasonably sure he would have referred to that to stem the spread starting FROM THE FIRST intel briefing and
NOT played it down. Since Joe IS NOT self absorbed like trump, therefore Joes attention would have been on saving lives NOT saving himself.

How about telling people the truth in January of how it could be spread and how dangerous it was?
How about not telling people it's a hoax? Making fun of how often Biden wears a mask? Not telling people "it'll go away in April" and then he says he didn't say that. Dude, anyone could have done better than him.
Biden wouldn't have lied to you. He would have had daily task forces like we have in Canada - remember Trump stopped them because he didn't want to answer the tough questions because, like in 60 minutes, he quits when things get tough. He's a loser, and a mofo.

You can be assured that he would not have, because it's not hypothetical it's historical. H1N1 infected 60 million people at its peak under the obama/biden administration.
Defense was a cluster f*ck, and even Ron Klain, who was biden's advisor at the time said they got lucky that more people didn't die because they handled the virus very poorly.
