US Vice-President Mike Pence in voluntary self-isolation after aide tests positive to coronavirus

Pence's press secretary, Katie Miller, the wife of Trump's senior adviser, Stephen Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus a day after confirmation that Trump's personal valet had been diagnosed with the disease.

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

US President Donald Trump on Monday hailed coronavirus testing efforts as the best in the world, but abruptly ended his Rose Garden news conference when grilled over why testing is a "competition" when people are still dying. Here's what has happened so far, and what the Trump administration is doing in response.

But they had not identified who Miller contracted the virus from as of Sunday, raising concerns inside the White House about how to contain the outbreak.

The UK government's advice now states: "This increased mobility means the Government is now advising that people should aim to wear a face-covering in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible and they come into contact with others that they do not ordinarily meet, for example on public transport or in some shops". Gilday tested negative, the spokesperson said. None has announced testing positive for the CCP virus and, taking into account what has been described as limited exposure to the infected person, are considered at relatively low risk of infection. Redfield is also a member of the task force.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN that he would begin a "modified quarantine", meaning he plans to mostly remain at home but potentially go to the office when no one else is present. Fauci, who tested negative Saturday, is one of the leading members of the task force. On Sunday night, the office of the chairman of the committee, Sen.

Dr Deborah Birx and other staff participated as usual from the Situation Room, Mr Pence said, explaining the "slightly different circumstance". Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has reportedly also tested positive.

Fauci: 'Serious consequences' if USA states reopen fast
US President Donald Trump has been encouraging states to end a weeks-long shuttering of major components of their economies . The US has reported more than 80,000 deaths and 1.3 million infections.

Hassett's predictive model may leave a lot to be desired-Nate Silver believes that he arrived at it by using a stock Excel spreadsheet function-but it's wise of him to wear a mask, since the White House is on its way to becoming a coronavirus hotspot.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to encourage states and local leaders to push to reopen their economies even as the virus continues to spread throughout the country.

The New York Times first reported the lack of plans to keep Trump and Pence separated despite concern they both could be incapacitated by the disease, citing two senior administration officials.

"I don't think you need that kind of testing or that much testing", Trump claimed last week.

"It is scary to go to work", he said.

This made for a striking contrast, as Trump spoke of the "pent-up demand" and "enthusiasm" in the U.S. for reopening businesses and easing government-ordered social distance restrictions, while denying that the system that protects White House personnel from infection had broken down.

He said it was his decision to have all West Wing staff wear the face masks. "But, you know, it's a time when people have to step up and serve their country".
