President Trump and members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force held a briefing on the federal government’s response to the pandemic. The president, along with Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, announced a $19 billion relief program to assist farmers, ranchers, and consumers who have been hit by the pandemic. The package includes a program to purchase $3 billion worth of fresh meat, dairy, and produce in order to help farms that have been struggling, as well as to allow for the distribution of food to those in need. Also during the briefing, Vice President Pence provided an update on coronavirus testing, saying to date over 3.7 million coronavirus tests have been conducted, and that “our best scientists and health experts assess that today we have a sufficient amount of testing to meet the requirements of a phase one reopening if state governors should choose to do that.” close
