Biden, Harris honour COVID-19 victims at ceremony on eve of inauguration | FULL

U.S. president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris honoured the nearly 400,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19 at a lighting ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, the evening before the presidential inauguration.

Harris said her hope is the nation emerges from the pandemic with “with a new wisdom to cherish simple moments, to imagine new possibilities and to open our hearts, just a little bit more, to one another."

“Let us shine the lights through darkness along the sacred pool of reflection and remember all who we lost,” Biden said, leading the lighting ceremony followed by a moment of silence.

The ceremony was the first federal event memorializing the country’s COVID-19 victims and occurred on the last day of Donald Trump’s presidency after his administration’s pandemic response has been blamed for the United States having the highest COVID-19 death toll of any country in the world.

The president-elect plans to make coronavirus relief a top priority when he takes office on Wednesday under unprecedented security measures in the nation’s capital.
