While the ongoing pandemic has triggered uncertainty in the lives of people around the world, a video of President Joe Biden reassuring a little girl has won praise online.

“Don’t be scared, honey. Don’t be scared. You’re going to be fine, and we’re going to make sure mommy’s fine, too,” Biden said during the CNN town hall on Tuesday.

In a video, which has now gone viral on social media, Milwaukee-based graphic designer Jessica Salas stood next to her 8-year-old daughter and shared how her two children often ask her about their well being and whether they will all die after contracting the coronavirus.

“Kids don’t get Covid very often. It’s unusual for that to happen. They don’t — the evidence so far is children aren’t the people most likely to get Covid,” Biden said in the clip while addressing the little girl.
