Speaking directly to millennials, Dr. Birx very clearly stepped up her public warnings to Americans in their 20's, trying to get their attention about the virus.
"There may be disproportional number of infections among that group," Birx added.
As Birx said more test results would be coming in soon from around the country, she urged Americans not to overreact to the raw number of Coronavirus cases.
"So, we will see the number of people diagnosed dramatically increase over the next 4-5 days," Birx said, arguing that will mainly be the result of getting rid of a backlog of tests for the virus.
On the issue of testing, President Trump was pressed as to why NBA players were seemingly able to get tests easily, while regular Americans were told to wait.
On Wednesday, the President and Vice President announced a series of other measures to step up the federal response on the Coronavirus, which included:
+ President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to help marshal resources during a time of national emergency.
+ Vice President Pence called on hospitals and dentists to stop elective surgeries.
+ The Trump Administration will suspend evictions and foreclosures through April.
+ Two military hospital ships will be deployed, one to New York City to help deal with medical needs.
