Watch live: Biden Covid team holds briefing as more states lift pandemic restrictions

[The stream is slated to start at 11 a.m. ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.]

President Joe Biden's Covid-19 response team is holding a news briefing Friday on the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 28 million Americans and killed at least 520,356 in a little over a year.

On Thursday, Democratic Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont said a number of the state's businesses will be allowed to reopen at full capacity beginning March 19. The move follows similar measures from Texas and Mississippi, both run by Republican governors.

But top U.S. health officials, including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, are warning against rolling back public health measures too soon. They say it could reverse the current downward trajectory in infections and delay the nation's recovery from the pandemic.

Oklahoma State star, NBA draft prospect Cade Cunningham injures ankle in loss to Baylor

Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham crossed over and went to his left. But he stepped on the foot of Baylor’s Davion Mitchell.

Cunningham went down.

With 42.8 seconds remaining, the Cowboys’ superstar and highly regarded NBA draft prospect clutched his left ankle on the court. The outcome was nearly finalized — a No. 3-ranked Baylor 81-70 win — but the real concern Thursday night was with Cunningham.

He was helped off the court and did not return. He did walk off the court after the loss under his own power with a slight limp.

OSU coach Mike Boynton did not have an update on Cunningham’s status after the game. Cunningham will be evaluated soon.
