Ultimately, the aim is to "ensure that every symptomatic case and critically, the asymptomatic cases, are quickly tracked and traced to ensure that not only can we control this epidemic, but predict outbreaks before they expand", she said.
"According to the governors plans for next month, we will easily double that 4 million number", Brett Giroir, an assistant secretary of Health and Human Services, said during a press conference at the White House. "Not worth the time & effort!"
"Some of you might start thinking about school openings because a lot of people are wanting to have the school openings", he told the governors. Germany is looking at things and we're looking at things.
During the presentation, Mr Bryan had claimed bleach can kill the virus within five minutes. "Really a disgusting situation that we've been confronted with, but they're moving along".
Italy - the first European country to go into lockdown seven weeks ago - began allowing some construction and factory workers to go back to work on Monday.
Mr Trump made the disinfectant remarks on Thursday, after an official presented the results of U.S. government research that showed Covid-19 could be killed in minutes by bleach.
Trump has come under withering scrutiny for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, particularly testing missteps early on that hampered the country's ability to detect outbreaks.
"What is the goal of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately", he tweeted on Saturday at roughly the same time in the evening that the briefing would have taken place.
He did not say who he was referencing and gave no other details.
Trump hit back: "If I wasn't president, you would have been in war with Korea, you would have been in war with North Korea if I wasn't president".
"I never even thought of changing the date of the election", he answered. Trump has been incensed by unflattering newspaper reports about his work habits and frequent use of the sometimes two-hour briefings to praise himself, while battering rivals. The testing will be scheduled online and take place at select CVS Pharmacy locations in parking lots or at drive-thru windows.
Just before the afternoon meeting kicked off, the camera live-streaming the presser in the White House Cabinet Room zoomed in on Trump, where the President appeared to whisper, "I love everybody". "That was late in February". But at no point did the president suggest that he was giving expert opinion.
The city issued a stay-at-home order in March. At that session, however, Trump cut off proceedings earlier than usual and didn't take questions from the assembled reporters.
Spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said briefings would be held later in the week but "they might have a new look to them, a new focus to them".
"It's far too many - one person is too many for this".
"As a scientist and a public health official and a researcher, sometimes, I worry that we don't get the information to the American people that they need, when we continue to bring up something that was from Thursday night", she said on CNN's "State of the Union". "The big decision was closing the border, doing the ban on people coming in from China".
"This is a reminder that under no circumstances should any disinfectant product be administered into the body through injection, ingestion or any other route", the tweet said.
"I think we've done a great job".
