LIVE VIDEO: First Biden White House COVID Briefing

CBS News reports:

Federal public health experts and members of the White House COVID-19 response team are holding their inaugural briefing Wednesday on the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, after President Joe Biden announced plans to ramp up the weekly supply of COVID-19 vaccines to states and territories in the coming days.

The group will take questions from reporters one day after the president said his administration is “bringing back the pros to talk about COVID in an unvarnished way.” Scientists and federal health officials working on the coronavirus response are expected to host briefings several times each week focusing on the pandemic.
