Coronavirus concern grows as White House staffers, Secret Service personnel test positive

Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, is in the news after her personal assistant tested positive for Covid-19.

According to the report, the assistant was not symptomatic and had been teleworking for almost two months and was tested out of caution.

Protective facial coverings have been a hard sell for Trump and Pence despite a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control that people wear masks or alternatives. The breach threw the executive mansion into a tizzy, with one account saying Trump was "lava-level mad" that someone so close to him had tested positive.

Katie Miller, the vice president's press secretary, was notified Friday about the result of her coronavirus test, Washington Post reported.

President Trump said during the meeting on Friday: "She's a wonderful young woman, Katie, she tested very good for a long period of time".

When a reporter asked whether Trump had told Putin not to interfere in this year's election, he shot back that she was "very rude" and they "didn't discuss that". The US President now firmly believes the time has come to reconcile to the danger of coronavirus flare-ups to rescue the economy from terminal decline. The White House had no immediate comment on whether Stephen Miller had been tested or if he was still working in the White House.

Dr. Fauci is going into self-quarantine over potential coronavirus exposure
The White House has stepped up screening since and each the president and the vice-president are actually examined day by day. Fauci has entered a modified quarantine after low-risk exposure to a White House staffer who tested positive with coronavirus.

As per the White House's news update on Thursday, President Donald Trump's valet tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

This follows a US Navy member who serves as one of Trump's valets who tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday, according to CNN.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents reviewed by the news website showed 23 members of the federal law enforcement agency have recovered from the disease.

The White House has also instituted daily, as opposed to weekly, coronavirus tests for Mr Trump and Mr Pence.

She is the second person working at the White House complex known to have tested positive for the virus this week.

The coronavirus is hitting close to home for the Trump family. People over 60 (which Trump and Pence both are) are also at a much higher risk of developing some of the virus's most severe complications, making social distancing even more critical for the pair right now.

Both Trump and Pence have drawn fire for not donning masks, with critics arguing they are setting a bad example for Americans.
