AUSTIN (1080 KRLD) - On a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Texas Senator John Cornyn weighed in on the state and federal response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

“We're going to continue to keep working with our local officials as well as the federal officials to make sure that Texans are kept safe,” said Cornyn.

Cornyn wouldn’t go so far as to say the coronavirus outbreak is under control but on a conference call with reporters on Wednesday he did say ‘so far so good’. “It's clear that the Administration thinks that there's more we need to do because they've requested several billion of additional funding to make sure that we develop a vaccine and that we make sure we see this to an end.”

“I do believe Health and Human Services and the Administration generally, along with the state and local partners, are doing a good job containing it so far,” said Cornyn.
