Ivanka Trump's PA infected with Covid-19

Ivanka Trump's PA infected with Covid-19

But Trump recently revealed that he will start getting tested on a daily basis following the new cases. "I understand Mike has been tested. and he tested negative".

Two days prior, a valet to President Donald Trump tested positive for the disease, reportedly sending the president into a froth.

Updating on the same, Gabe Fleisher wrote, "This is the third confirmed White House coronavirus case: President Trump's valet, Vice President Pence's press secretary, and now Ivanka Trump's personal assistant". This has brought the pandemic to within a degree of the center of power in the U.S. and made the White House an unexpected emerging hotspot even as large parts of America is now re-opening for business to very light footfall.

"We've done every single thing that Dr. (Deborah) Birx and Dr. (Anthony) Fauci have asked us to do", she added, referring to highly respected physicians on the White House coronavirus task force.

West Wing staffers around Mr Trump and Mr Pence have not been wearing masks regularly.

"We had the greatest economy in the history of the world. and we artificially closed it", he said on "Fox & Friends" on Friday.

Last week, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told reporters that anyone who comes near the president and vice president are being tested for coronavirus. However, the President and his Vice have tested negative for it since then. Such a test could confirm previous exposure.

Mr Trump and Mr Pence maintain busy public schedules.

"In the span of hours, the coronavirus task force was likely exposed, the vice president was definitely exposed, and a top health official can't come into the office", the source told Politico.

More than 1,322,000 people in the US had tested positive for the virus and at least 78,616 people had died as of early Saturday morning. "Those jobs will all be back and they'll be back very soon and next year we're going to have a phenomenal year".

And despite Trump's wishful musings that the virus will disappear on its own, public health experts say no end is in sight without a vaccine. The lawmakers were tested for the virus before the meeting. The president and vice president have also chosen not to wear face masks in recent appearances.

The virus, which first surfaced in Wuhan, China late a year ago, has infected more than 1.2 million Americans and driven millions into unemployment as a result of lockdown measures put in place to curb a rise in infections.
