Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) held a news conference on the state’s coronavirus pandemic response from a Texas Department of Public Safety warehouse facility in Austin. He updated the press on the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the state, discussed the need for more medical supplies and medical professionals, and reminded people about the importance of adhering to state executive orders, such as social distancing, in order to mitigate the spread of the virus. When asked about President Trump considering relaxing economic restrictions as well as similar comments made by Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick (R-TX), the governor said, “I will base my decisions as governor of the state of Texas on what physicians say,” later adding that “the primary obligation we all have is public health and safety.” close
