One day after introducing sweeping vaccine mandates for private businesses with over 100 workers, federal employees, and health care staff, President Biden denounced Republican governors who have resisted his restrictive, COVID-related edicts.

Speaking at a Washington, D.C. school on Friday, Biden accused certain GOP governors of having an indifferent and dismissive attitude toward the public health needs of their states’ children and residents.

“I am so disappointed that particularly some Republican governors have been so cavalier with the health of these kids, so cavalier with the health of their communities. … we’re playing for real here – this isn’t a game,” he said.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reports that as of September 2, seven states have reported zero child deaths related to COVID-19, and that of the 45 states that provided data to the AAP, “0.00 percent-0.03 percent of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death.”
