COVID-19 Task Force

WHAT WE LEARNED TODAY


“The number of positive tests is tracking very closely with the numbers of cases diagnosed.”

Dr. Deborah Birx answering a question about whether or not the tests currently administered are accurate. Dr. Birx says 35% of COVID-19 tests are positive in New York and New Jersey – the current "hot spots." She says she is still missing 50% of data reporting from test results.

“I have family in New York. My sister is a nurse practioner in a Westchester hospital. And my niece is a nurse on a Long Island hospital…I have skin in this game. The President asked me to get more to healthcare workers. I’m going to get more to healthcare workers.”

Rear Admiral John Polowczyk, Vice Director of Logistics, on the federal gov't supplying states with protective gear – including 200,000 N95 masks to NY.


“I’m assuring American public now…if we have your information, you’ll get it within two weeks.”

Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin said initial stimulus payments for Americans will happen sooner than the 3 weeks expected. He emphasized those with direct deposits will receive their payments faster (and safer than having to cash in person at the bank). Sec. Mnuchin said a new, soon-to-be announced web portal will help citizens update their information.

"We're asking everyone to apply what works" – Dr. Birx on social distancing.
