Larry Kudlow participates in coronavirus economic "relief update" virtual event at the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Wednesday said the Trump administration would try to fairly distribute the next round of aid for small businesses hurt by the coronavirus outbreak, saying demand for the first round of funding was "overwhelming."

"We're always making adjustments wherever necessary. We're always trying to be as totally fair as possible in allocating" the money, he said in an interview on CNBC, adding that he expected there to be "very significant" demand for the loans.

He added that additional legislation may also be needed to protect businesses from liability as states start to reopen economic activity.
