Former Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, said on Sunday the party may be forced to host a “virtual” nominating convention in August due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
The Democratic Party already postponed its convention from July to August last week, citing worries over the outbreak that has prompted a majority of U.S. states to order their residents to stay at home to contain the disease’s spread.
“We may have to do a virtual convention,” Biden said on ABC’s “This Week” program. “I think we should be thinking about that right now … We may not be able to put 10, 20, 30,000 people in one place.”
