Jen Psaki, the outgoing White House Press Secretary, once again on Friday pleaded from her platform the Biden administration's case for making more COVID funding available, in order to prevent "more Americans" from dying "needlessly."

She started out by talking about "what the consequences will be if we don't have [this funding], and those are significant."

"I mean, obviously, more Americans will die needlessly, which is the biggest heart-breaking issue."

Getting into specifics, Psaki stated, "We're going to exhaust our treatment supply. We'll lose out to other countries on promising new treatments. This is one of the biggest components that is of concern to the president, [and] all of us."

"Because, as you know, how we have approached this to date is we have ordered ahead, so that we are first in line, and we have the supply needed when there's a better booster, when there's a better vaccine, or a vaccine that will treat specific variants."

"And, we are essentially putting ourselves at the back of the line without this funding," Psaki concluded.

Psaki had previously mentioned the subject on May 2 at another White House press conference, mentioning a "dire need for money to continue to fund our needs on COVID."

" ... a range of new sub-variants that have been prompted some surges in different parts of the United States."

"This is a reminder of how vital it is that we are prepared, that we are able to purchase in the future ... modified or variant-specific vaccines or treatments to protect the American people, as we continue battling COVID."
