WASHINGTON−The Trump administration is doing “a great job” reopening the country after lockdowns to contain the CCP virus, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said on June 21.
Wolf told NBCs “Meet the Press” program that the White House virus task force was continuing to meet daily and the Centers for Disease Control had issued guidance to states on how to flatten the curve, including use of face masks.
“Were seeing a number of states throughout the country in different phases, from phase one to phase three, trying to get this economy, trying to get the country back up and running. And were doing a great job at that,” Wolf told NBC.
In a separate interview with CBSs “Face the Nation,” Wolf said the White House task force was “on top of all of these outbreaks within state by state, county by county, whether its Arizona, Texas, Florida, a number of these states that are having hotspots.”
He said the Trump administration was surging medical equipment and staff, as well as individuals from the Department of Homeland Security, into areas that were seeing an uptick in infections, to better understand the causes of those outbreaks and support the state-led reopening efforts.
