Here’s what we know about the White House coronavirus outbreak

Here’s what we know about the White House coronavirus outbreak”

Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine said his state was ramping up testing but cast doubt on the feasibility of doing that for everyone in every home.

When asked about outbreak there Mr Trump told reporters, "I've felt no vulnerability whatsoever". Pence worked at the White House on Monday, but did not attend a news conference held in the Rose Garden.

The order applies to the West Wing of the White House, it is understood.

Unlike Pence, members of the White House coronavirus task force-including Food and Drug Administration commissioner Stephen Hahn and CDC Director Robert Redfield-have begun a period of quarantine.

Trump himself has come under fire for not wearing a face mask during public events.

Mr Pence's press secretary Katie Miller, the wife of Trump aide Stephen Miller, tested positive for the virus on Friday.

Trump, who is desperately seeking to reboot the economy ahead of the November election, said the US was making "tremendous strides" in ramping up testing and the number of virus infections is "coming down very rapidly".

Mr Trump said on Friday that Mr Pence's spokesman, Ms Katie Miller, had tested positive for the virus, a day after news that Mr Trump's personal valet had also tested positive. Testing for coronavirus is now widely available across Australia.

Senior White House officials who come into regular contact with Mr Trump are now being tested daily for the coronavirus.

The White House could become a coronavirus hot spot as senior officials believe that the virus is spreading in the cramped offices on all three floors of the West Wing. The claim is heavily disputed.

Even as President Donald Trump continues his push to "reopen" the country, arguing last week that "more death" is a small price to pay to halt the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, employees in the country's most secure building reportedly say they now dread showing up to work. He said that 300,000 tests are being performed daily - a doubling of testing capacity in just the last few weeks. Everyone in attendance, including presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, had masks, after a directive requiring them for all White House staff.

A Bloomberg reporter tweeted on Sunday that Pence was self-isolating away from the White House following his aide's diagnosis, prompting Pence's office to issue the statement.

"We're two months into it", she said. Can the United States economy reopen and recover when even the White House isn't safe?

For weeks, Mr Trump has sought to encourage an easing of lockdown measures throughout the USA, arguing it was time to get back to work amid dire economic news.

However, public health experts have warned that easing restrictions too early could lead to a resurgence of transmissions and a second coronavirus wave.

Current CDC guidelines state: "CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are hard to maintain (e.g. grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission".

According to the CovidTracking Project, a charity, they USA conducted an average of 248,000 daily tests in the first week of May. "He tested negative, so we have to understand that, but he comes into contact with a lot of people". In over a dozen states where lockdown measures have been relaxed, including Texas, South Carolina and Arizona, less than 2% of residents have been tested.
