The White House COVID-19 Response Team and public health officials will provide an update on the pandemic during a briefing on Thursday morning.
The briefing is slated to begin at 10 a.m. and it will be livestreamed in this article. Delays are possible; if there is not a livestream in this article, check back at a later time.
The update comes as President Joe Biden has continued to express his frustration over the slowing COVID-19 vaccination rate.
Biden, speaking Wednesday night at a televised town hall in Cincinnati, said the public health crisis has turned largely into a plight of the unvaccinated as the spread of the delta variant has led to a surge in infections around the country.
“We have a pandemic for those who haven’t gotten the vaccination — it’s that basic, that simple,” he said on the CNN town hall.
