Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Sunday that she does not regret initially downplaying the threat of coronavirus in late February.

"No, not at all," Pelosi said on CNN's State of the Union when asked if she regretted underestimating the extent of widespread infection in the United States at the time.

Pelosi also visited San Francisco's Chinatown neighborhood on Feb. 24 and urged Californians to "come and visit and enjoy Chinatown." She said she thought it was "very safe" to be in a potentially crowded neighborhood.
