We wish you the best. The top story, the latest on the coronavirus emergency. The new white house team issuing a stark warning as they ramp up vaccine efforts across the country. Our chief white house correspondent Cecilia Vega has all of those details for us, good morning, Cecilia. Reporter: Hi, Amy. Good morning to you. Yeah, so new briefings by the top doctors and scientists on covid here at the white house will be happening three times a week. The white house says this is all part of president Biden's new effort.
