Mission continues by @WhiteHouse #coronavirus task force "to save American lives," says @VP. Image
"President Trump directed us to host this briefing" amid rising cases and hospitalizations due to the #coronavirus, says @VP.
Also in the briefing room: Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx and @CDCDirector.
"We know the American people know what to do," says @VP.
#COVID19 cases "are rising throughout the country" with positivity in tests during the past month rising from 5% to 10%, says @VP.
"America has never been more prepared to combat this virus than we are today," says @VP. Image
We're going to hear from both Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci, among others, according to @VP.
Day after any #COVID19 vaccine is approved it'll be shipped and the following day the first Americans will get inoculations, focusing on the most vulnerable, says @VP.
We do not support closing any schools, says @VP.
"Help is on the way," adds @VP.
"I believe the day is coming soon when we will put this coronavirus in the past," declares @VP.
Americans "need to increase their vigilance at this moment," says Dr. Deborah Birx. Image
This @WhiteHouse #coronavirus task force briefing is not being carried by either @CNN or @MSNBC. It is airing live on @FoxNews.
People are "unknowingly spreading the virus to others" and that's why it's important to wear a mask, says Dr. Birx. Image
"There is more cases, more rapidly than what we had seen before," says Dr. Birx, a blunt acknowledgment from the @WhiteHouse lectern just how severe is the #coronavirus case surge in the United States right now. Image
Dr. Anthony Fauci calls the trial results of two of the #COVID19 vaccines "extraordinarily impressive." Image
Speed of the trials for the vaccines didn't compromise the safety of the process and compressed the timeline from years to months, says Dr. Fauci.
"Need to put to rest any concept this was rushed in an inappropriate way," adds Dr. Fauci.
#COVID19 vaccines doses to high-priority people in the US "at the end of December," says Dr. Fauci.
Gen. Gustave Perna: Distribution of any #COVID19 vaccine to the entire US, including territories, within 24 hours of an EUA. Image
"K through 12 schools can operate with face-to-face learning" safely and responsibly during the #coronavirus pandemic, says @CDCDirector. Image
And @CDCDirector cautions against "emotional decisions about what to close and what not to close."
"We are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel," adds @CDCDirector.
"Today we need all of us to go all in," says @CDCDirector.
"Hang in there with us," says @SecAzar. "There is light at the end of the tunnel." Image
"My message is hope and help is on the way," concludes @SecAzar.
"We're getting there, America," says @VP. Image
EUA application by @pfizer for its #COVID19 vaccine will be submitted Friday, confirm @SecAzar and @VP.
And to the shouts of a dozen reporters, @VP and the @WhiteHouse #coronavirus task force depart without taking questions. Image
Travel/photo lid just called at the @WhiteHouse meaning we won't be seeing or hearing from @POTUS today (except perhaps on #Twitter).
