US President Donald Trump has said that, from tomorrow he will resume regular public briefings about his administration's response to America's coronavirus outbreak, APA reports citing BBC.

Mr Trump gave 35 daily briefings with the White House's coronavirus task force in March and April, but frequently came under criticism for providing false or misleading statements. In turn, he accused the media of bias.

He said the revival of briefings would allow him to share "positive things" his administration is doing, and updates on vaccines and treatments.

"I think it’s a great way to get information out to the public," the president told reporters. "We had a lot of people watching, record numbers watching in the history of cable television, and there’s never been anything like it."

His first briefing is scheduled for Tuesday at 17:00 local time (21:00 GMT).
