(CNSNews.com) - Former Vice President Joe Biden's presidential campaign placed a video of Biden on YouTube on Thursday in which he told Americans they must abandon “the deeply ingrained habits in our country like handshakes and hugs.”

Biden was giving his advice on how the nation should deal with the coronavirus.

“We must, all of us, follow the guidelines of health officials and take appropriate protections to protect ourselves and, and critically, to protect others, especially those who are most at-risk from this disease,” Biden says in the video.

“It’s going to mean,” he said, “making some radical changes in our personal behaviors: More frequent and more thorough hand-washing, staying home from work if you’re ill, but also altering the deeply ingrained habits in our country like handshakes and hugs, avoiding large public gatherings.”
