White House to resume public COVID-19 briefings

White House press secretary Jen Psaki says the Biden administration will provide public briefings on the coronavirus pandemic starting Wednesday.

The briefings will feature public health officials. Psaki says they will occur three times a week and provide details on the government’s response to addressing the pandemic.

That is a stark contrast to the Trump administration, which kept Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious-diseases expert, on a short leash, together with other top health officials, as the West Wing press shop tightly controlled Fauci’s media appearances and offered few public briefings, as the virus raged in recent months.
