Joe Biden has made his first public appearance since March, emerging from isolation to lay a wreath to mark Memorial Day at a park in Delaware.

Biden has been campaigning from a home TV studio since the coronavirus pandemic made traditional rallies and events impossible.

Biden canceled in-person campaign events. President Trump has declined to wear a mask while in public.

Ronald Klain, Biden's chief of staff during the Obama administration and White House Ebola response coordinator from 2014-2015, criticized Hume for his tweets. With the help of rapid coronavirus testing equipment in the White House, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have traveled the country - often to key swing states - for official White House events. Biden previously wore a mask during a television appearance.

"Such a shameful and embarrassing post".

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania also took part in a wreath-laying ceremony as part of Memorial Day commemorations on Monday.

In a visit to a Ford factory in MI last week Trump was pictured not wearing a mask, though stated he had had done so in an area not accessible to the press.

Trump ultimately appeared at the plant with no mask, claiming he wore one "in the back area" but removed it because he "didn't want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it".

Biden, the prospective Democratic presidential nominee, and his wife, Jill, both wearing black masks, laid a wreath of white roses at the memorial for US military personnel who fought in World War Two and the Korean War. They each wore face coverings during their visit. But he has not been seen in public.

The state of DE has urged people to "wear face coverings in public settings" to slow the spread of the coronavirus. He proceeded to demonstrate while reminding viewers that wearing masks is so people can protect themselves from contracting the virus or spreading it to others.

Although COVID-19 cases have dipped overall for the USA, the spread of the virus has changed from urban to rural areas, according to a Washington Post analysis. Biden himself later said he should not have been so cavalier with the comments and that he wasn't taking the black vote for granted.
