Health care experts have "every confidence" that the actions outlined in President Donald Trump's 15-day plan to slow the spread of coronavirus is working, and the White House is focused on putting Americans back to work, Vice President Mike Pence said in a Fox News town hall event Tuesday afternoon. 

"Over the months ahead, we will focus on our most vulnerable by putting America back to work. We will also make that a priority," said Pence. "As the president said, in weeks and not months."

Trump has made it clear that while the administration stays completely focused on the nation's most vulnerable, said Pence.

"We want to find a way to open America back up, to get American businesses moving again," said Pence.

Meanwhile, Trump has "reflected on the fact that there may be some really good changes and practices just in our culture going forward, as we do with this unprecedented spread of the coronavirus, and infectious disease," Pence said in response to a viewer's question about what could be considered the "new normal."

"What we are working toward in this 15 days is to literally lower the number of Americans that will be exposed to the coronavirus," said Pence. "I am inspired to see, literally, reports of people all across this country -- not just in areas that have seen an outbreak, but in areas where there have been a limited number of cases -- they are putting into practice these principles."
