COVID-19 briefings end in New Jersey

“I was certainly not the only governor who held briefings to update residents on our progress against the virus, but I am proud to have held more than anyone else,” Murphy said, noting that he has held more than 250 briefings.

Murphy said updates would continue online, but added that a personal briefing would be held if necessary.

“And please God, that need will not arise,” he remarked.

The governor noted the need to move beyond the pandemic, a theme he has commented on in recent weeks. On NBC’s Meet the Press in late JanuaryMurphy said the state will have to “learn to live” with the virus.

“We are not going to make it to zero. We have to learn to live with this,” he said.

To date, New Jersey has reported more than 1.8 million confirmed COVID cases since that day. More than 29,000 residents died from the virus, with more than 2,900 deaths reported as likely. These deaths are being investigated by the state.
