The Associated Press reports:
The White House coronavirus task force is scheduled to hold a briefing at 12 P.M. ET, Saturday, to provide the latest on the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During Friday’s briefing, President Donald Trump said he has invoked the Defense Production Act to get needed medical supplies on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak, mobilizing the federal government to marshal the private sector to combat the pandemic.
Trump had said earlier in the week he would tap the act as needed. He said Friday he has put that “in gear.”
