President Impeached has announced via Twitter that he will be addressing the media to provide an update on the coronavirus (COVID-19) at 1:30 p.m. D.C. time.

On Friday, President Impeached during a South Carolina rally, called the coronavirus worry the Democrats “new hoax.”

CNN reported on Saturday that there are 67 cases of COVID-19 in the U.S., the majority of those infected are repatriated passengers from the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. As of Friday, there were four cases without any related travel history.

A woman in Oregon and a high school boy in Washington state are presumptive positives, which means their tests were conducted at local labs but the results have not yet been confirmed by the CDC.
The other two mystery cases are from California.
An older woman in Santa Clara County who had been hospitalized for a respiratory illness tested positive for the virus but had no relevant travel history or contact with anyone infected, health officials said.

Saturday’s presser comes just three days after President Impeached named Vice President Mike Pence as the point-man to deal with COVID-19.

It comes just two days after the Washington Post reported that according to a new whistleblower complaint officials at the Department of Health and Human Services “sent more than a dozen workers to receive the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, without proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear,” the whistleblower is seeking federal protection saying she was unfairly reassigned after raising concerns.

The presser comes just a day after, the Washington Post reported that a Department of Homeland Security employee was told to report to work after she traveled to China allegedly violated the mandated 14-day COVID-19 quarantine period.

According to complaints filed Friday by the union that represents the woman’s co-workers, after arriving from China, “she called a supervisor to ask if she should remain at home under quarantine, but she was told to report to work Feb. 10, according to Ward Morrow, an attorney for the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents USCIS employees.”

Morrow went on to say that the woman told co-workers that “she had recently arrived from China and told them she was self-quarantining at meetings by sitting apart on one side of the room.”

So far neither she or her co-workers have shown symptoms of the COVID-19 infection.

This unexpected presser also comes just hours before President Impeached is scheduled to offer the key-note address at CPAC.

For what it’s worth, the presser also come as Wall Street suffered heavy loses for the week.
