PRESIDENT-ELECT Joe Biden says that if Donald Trump and his administration fail to coordinate appropriately with his transition team then "more people will die".
Mr Biden is set to begin his presidency on January 20, but plans regarding coronavirus relief, national security and vaccine plans have already begun.
Mr Trump has thus far failed to acknowledge the result of this month's presidential election, despite it being universally called in favour of his opponent.
Fears are growing that a transition of power from one administration to another will be anything but smooth, and Biden warns that there will be dire consequences if that's the case.
"More people may die if we don't coordinate," Biden told reporters.
Th President-Elect and his aides have stressed the importance of being briefed on White House efforts to control the Covid-19 crisis, as well as plans to distribute prospective vaccines, given that Biden's administration will soon be in charge of it, but nothing of sort has happened yet.
Trump is still refusing to concede the election, and has continually stated that he wants to bring accusations of voter fraud to the Supreme Court to challenge the result.
As of yet, however, Mr Trump nor his team have provided any substantial evidence of electoral foul-play.
