Jean-Pierre on Criticism of Monkeypox Response Delay: We 'Met the Moment' in May, But 'It Evolved' as Diseases 'Tend to' Do

On Thursday's broadcast of CNN's "The Lead," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded to a question on the criticism that the Biden administration has received for delaying ordering monkeypox vaccines by stating that the administration knew it needed to act back in May, and "met the moment when we heard about the first couple of cases, and then it evolved." Something that it's "inherently known" infectious diseases tend to do.
