WILMINGTON, Del. — Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Tuesday will open a new round of attacks on President Trump and his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, assailing him for his continued failure to protect the American people from the virus, even as the number of new cases continues to surge in many parts of the country.

In a speech he is expected to deliver near his home in Wilmington, Del., Mr. Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, plans to say that Mr. Trump “has called himself a wartime president but is surrendering to the virus,” according to the Biden campaign.

“Americans social-distanced and did their part to bend the curve — but Trump didn’t lead,” the Biden campaign said, offering a preview of the address.
