President Donald Trump will begin holding coronavirus briefings again starting on Tuesday, July 21, and you can watch today’s entire press conference live online.
It’s the first coronavirus press conference the White House has held since April, and it comes as COVID-19 cases are rising in many states across the country.
Here’s what to know about the White House’s coronavirus briefing, including how to watch a livestream online.
The briefing will take place at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 21.
The press briefing will stream live on the White House’s YouTube page. You can watch the briefing in the video player above.
Trump will likely discuss the spike in coronavirus cases throughout the country, as many states have had to shut down businesses even after reopening.
There have been more than 3.8 million positive coronavirus cases in the United States since the pandemic began, with more than 141,000 deaths linked to the virus, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
Trump will speak during the briefing, but it’s unclear if anyone else will join him. According to multiple reports, no one from the White House Coronavirus Task Force will speak at Tuesday’s briefing, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The Trump administration recently introduced new guidance that reroutes coronavirus data directly to the White House and bypasses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, spurring fears that the White House may be trying to work around public health experts.
