Coronavirus Task Force Briefing Live Stream Sunday: How to Watch White House's Latest COVID-19 Announcements

There are several ways to watch as President Donald Trump and the Coronavirus Task Force hold their latest press briefing on Sunday to discuss the U.S. recording the most COVID-19 cases of any country in the world.

The members of the Coronavirus Task Force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, are set to appear in the White House's James S. Brady Press Briefing room at around 5:00 p.m. EST Sunday. The White House's official website will live stream the March 29 presser as well as the official YouTube video page for the Trump administration.

On Saturday, the president held a coronavirus briefing in Norfolk, Virginia to see off the hospital ship Comfort before it departed for New York City. Trump, who is not an official member of the Pence-led task force, routinely appears at the press briefings to speak and his daily schedule shows he will be present Sunday.

"Will be doing a press conference today at 5:00 P.M. The White House. People are working harder than I have ever seen people work. It is a beautiful thing to watch!" Trump tweeted, confirming his intention on appearing, which has angered many of his critics. The White House official Twitter account also retweeted the president's remarks.

Sunday's briefing comes as Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's top expert on infectious disease and a member of the task force, recently defended the president's remarks that the Michigan and Washington governors should be more "appreciative" of the federal government's help. The head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease insisted their is no strife between himself, the president and members of the task force.

"The reality is, not the rhetoric, is that the people who need things will get what they need, there's the reality and the rhetoric. I know the spirit of the Task Force, and when people need things, it doesn't matter who they are, we try to get them what they need," Fauci told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday morning. He went on to say there could be "millions" of coronavirus cases and potentially between 100 and 200,000 people could die as a result of the pandemic.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 103,321 positive cases of coronavirus and 1,668 total deaths tied to COVID-19. New York State remains the country's largest hot spot for coronavirus cases, but areas in Louisiana and Chicago are seeing large increases.

Last week, Congress passed a more than $2 trillion federal government bailout of the U.S. economy, which has been placed on lockdown in order to curb the coronavirus pandemic.
