LIVE VIDEO: Trump Speaks On Coronavirus Response

USA Today reports:

President Donald Trump will make a prime-time address from the Oval Office on Wednesday about coronavirus amid widening concerns over an outbreak that is now a pandemic.

Trump’s address will come hours after the World Health Organization formally declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic as the global death toll rose above 4,300. Confirmed cases in the U.S. crept past 1,000, according to Johns Hopkins.

“I’ll be making a statement later tonight,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. Trump initially said that his remarks would “probably” take place 8 p.m. EDT. He later tweeted that he would be “addressing the Nation this evening” at 9 p.m. EDT.
