Two press briefings took place over the weekend to address the growing coronavirus outbreak, the President was pleased with the response so far. During the briefing AURN Washington Correspondent Jamie Jackson attempted to ask Vice President Mike Pence and the members of the White House coronavirus task force what their plan was for those living in public housing. As they were leaving, HUD Secretary Ben Carson responded saying they are doing a lot, but did not respond to a follow up question asking for specifics.
