US President-elect, Joe Biden, will deliver a Thanksgiving address to Americans on Wednesday ahead of the holiday.
Biden’s transition team made the announcement Tuesday, but didn’t provide many details.
His team said Biden’s remarks will be delivered from Wilmington, Delaware.
Biden’s remarks come at a critical juncture for the country as the coronavirus pandemic worsens, with new cases surging in many states.
In October, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Thanksgiving guidelines which advised against larger family gatherings and travel over the holiday season.
The nation is averaging 172,000 new virus cases per day, nearly doubling since the end of October, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Hospitalizations, deaths and the test positivity rate are also up sharply as the nation approaches Thanksgiving.
