  • US President Donald Trump at a press conference about the coronavirus

Representatives on both sides of the aisle have lauded some aspects of the outbreak response, while voicing frustration with others. "I'm not talking about what's happening here, I'm talking about what they're doing".

"We have now increased our assessment of the risk of spread and the risk of impact of COVID-19 to very high at global level", World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters on Friday.

Surrounded by officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, President Trump speaks Saturday afternoon from the White Hosue about the administration's coronavirus response.

Rep. John Garamendi (D., Calif.) said Friday he could get into a "serious altercation" with Donald Trump Jr. over his comment that Democrats want the coronavirus to ruin President Trump's chances of winning in November. "I am committed to keeping Washingtonians healthy, safe and informed". "He's among the most knowledgeable in the federal government".

A key question is whether the Trump administration is spending enough money to get the country prepared - especially as the CDC has struggled to expand the number of states that can test people for the virus.

His statements came as the White House weathers a firestorm over its conflicting messages about the severity of the coronavirus threat and its attempts to muzzle public health officials from giving more information to the public about the disease.

"They think Bernie's easier to beat", Trump said.

Officials said they were expanding travel restrictions on Iran and urged Americans to avoid hard-hit parts of Italy and South Korea.

At a White House press conference this afternoon concerning the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, a reporter suggested that the Trump administration may be keeping renowned immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Health Institute from communicating with reporters.

According to Politico, Trump haas yet to decide whether or not to install a coronavirus czar to coordinate efforts, similar to how the Obama administration successfully staved off the spread of Ebola in 2014.

Following the president's lead, Mulvaney also brushed off concerns over the virus.

So far, there are two cases of the virus linked to the skilled nursing facility, Duchin said during a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention briefing on Saturday. Ultimately, can they explain why they did it?

"He should not be near me when he says that", Garamendi replied, prompting Jackson to ask why.

"They sat on their hands for two months", Garamendi said.

Trump also relayed that there were only 15 confirmed cases of the coronavirus during the rally (there are 64), and he only briefly mentioned the Diamond Princess passengers and Wuhan evacuees during a press conference on Wednesday. By then, he said, "we hope to have a vaccine". The CDC announced Thursday that it had resolved the issue. Some communities, including San Francisco, already have declared local emergencies in case they need to obtain government funding. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer called for $US8.5 billion. Dick Durbin, tweeted Friday that Pence reached out to him about working together. "That could change. That's why it's important for all of us to prepare".

Everything should be geared toward overreacting now, when the threat in the United States is still in prospect, instead of later, when circumstances may be beyond anyone's direct control.
