Coronavirus uncomfortably close to White House

Coronavirus uncomfortably close to White House”

Further reports also revealed that Ivanka Trump's personal assistant tested positive for the virus, along with a US Navy member who serves as one of President's valet, who is recently found to have been affected by the COVID-19. All six later tested negative, the White House said.

Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has tested positive for coronavirus, U.S. officials said on Saturday while confirming the third infection in the White House in less than a week. Pence told reporters on Thursday that both he and Trump would now be tested daily as well.

What concerns a vast majority of people is the Trump administration's lack of ignorance and not implementing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) guidelines for reopening America.

USA health officials said they were taking all possible precautions to prevent the virus from spreading inside the White House, but the United States media noted that President Trump was still not wearing a mask.

The official said staff in the West Wing are tested regularly but much of Pence's staff - which works next door in the Executive Office Building - are tested less frequently.

But the White House's own coronavirus guidance urges people who've been exposed to COVID-19 to stay home, and away from others who haven't been exposed to the virus for 14 days, even if they're not sick.

"They say it's going to go - that doesn't mean this year - doesn't mean it's going to be gone, frankly, by fall or after the fall", he said.

This comes as an aide to Vice President Mike Pence and a spokesperson for the VP have tested positive for COVID-19.

Over a week ago, Trump launched "Operation Warp Speed" to accelerate the production of a vaccine to fight the virus, and he said himself in a virtual Fox News town hall last Sunday that the nation needs a vaccine. "All of the recommended guidelines we have for businesses that have essential workers were now putting in place here in the White House, so as America reopens safely the White House is continuing to operate safely".

"And then all of the sudden today she tested positive".

And he's declined to wear a mask in public, believing the image of him behind a face covering would send the wrong message as he works to convince Americans the health crisis is waning. A number of staffers who'd come into contact with her deplaned to be tested themselves.

On Friday, Trump attended a World War II veterans event in Washington to mark the 75th anniversary of the Allied victory in Europe - without wearing a mask.

Recent studies have suggested that the coronavirus thrives especially well in enclosed, indoor workplaces where people sit next to each other, chat, and exchange air all day long.
