Trump says Birx plans to visit Oklahoma as well as Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas.

Governor Kevin Stitt said in a news conference last week he looked forward to Birx’s visit.

“We’ve done a really good job looking at all the recommendations, so I’m looking forward to having her in the state, showing her what we’ve done, trying to figure out what best practices are across the state and what she’s seeing in other states that works well,” Stitt said.

Birx regularly appears alongside the rest of the White House Coronavirus Task Force during their COVID-19 updates.
