WASHINGTON–President Donald Trump says he’ll discuss the coronavirus threat at a White House news conference.

The session comes a day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S.

Trump says representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will join him.

Trump and members of his administration have been sending mixed signals about the virus. While the CDC has warned the public to prepare for a coronavirus outbreak, Trump said Tuesday that the situation is “very well under control in our country.”

The administration has asked Congress for an additional $2.5 billion to speed development of a vaccine, but officials say any vaccine is well over a year away.
