In his first briefing as White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha stressed the critical need for Congress to give the executive branch more funding to continue the fight against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Such funding would be used to develop new vaccines, more testing, and therapeutics as the virus evolves into new variants. Dr. Rochelle Walensky and Dr. Anthony Fauci underscored this need, showing data of how the newest variants are driving up cases and infections. A chart was shown of cases in South Africa, illustrating that BA.4 and BA.5 variants have already emerged in that country, and that the U.S. should be prepared for those strains. Reporters also asked questions about Paxlovid, an antiviral treatment, as well as the progress of vaccines for children under five. close
