Pool was ushered into Oval Office at 10:49 for briefing on response to Zika virus.

POTUS was joined by Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Director of NIH/NIAID Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dr. Tom Frieden.

POTUS spoke to the press for about 9 minutes about the government's current response while calling upon Congress to approve funding towards research and testing. "Congress should not adjourn until they get this done," he said.
