A coronavirus task force has a meeting scheduled to take place at the Department of Education this Wednesday, but according to CBS News reporter Paula Reid, Dr. Anthony Fauci says that he was told to participate in the meeting via teleconference and therefore won’t participate in the task force’s press briefing scheduled for later this morning.

In a subsequent tweet, Reid says that the White House appears to be “deliberately excluding” Fauci in light of comments from President Trump where he said he disagrees with Fauci.
