Ivanka Trump’s personal assistant has tested positive for the Coronavirus on Saturday. She is the third person of the White House to be infected with the Coronavirus.
The assistant works in a personal capacity for US President Donald Trump’s daughter. Reports say that she has not come in contact with Ivanka recently. She has been teleworking for the past two months, it said. And she was tested with an act of caution, though she did not display any symptoms.
On Friday, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner were tested and they reported negative. This testing happened after a day after confirmation from President Donald Trump that Vice President Mie Pence’s press Secretary Katie Miller had tested positive for the virus.
The President quoted that Katie has been a wonderful, young woman and suddenly she tested positive for the virus, during a meeting that happened at the White House. He also declared that he did not come into direct contact with him, but had met the Vice President and spent some time with him.
On Thursday, one of the President’s valets also tested positive for the virus.
And from the news of the valet’s illness, Trump has decided upon being tested for the deadly virus on a daily basis.
Following Miller’s case being positive, contact tracing was performed inside the White house.
Additionally, the White House is now taking extra care of sanitization and cleanliness. All the staffers are made to wear marks surely. Also, tests for Coronavirus and temperature checks have been boosted throughout the West Wing, which will be sanitized even frequently now.
Vice President Pence leads the Coronavirus task force of the White House. However, he recently paid a visit to the Mayo Clinic without wearing a mask, in spite of the clinic’s policy saying they’re required to wear masks.
Sources say the President himself denied wearing a mask during his trip to examine a mask-making facility in Arizona earlier this week.
