President Trump, Vice President Pence and members of the administration’s task force on the coronavirus are holding a press briefing on Saturday to provide an update on the pandemic.

Pence and other officials were scheduled to speak in the White House press briefing room at noon. The remarks are expected to be televised.

The briefing comes a day after Trump declared a national emergency over the spreading virus and led a meeting of the task force at the White House earlier Saturday.

The House early Saturday passed legislation to provide financial assistance to those impacted by the pandemic, with Trump on Saturday morning touting the bill as the result of “good teamwork.”

The press conference is scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. EDT.
