(Dan Tri) – Coronavirus has `knocked` on the door of the White House with two consecutive cases of infection among staff members close to President Donald Trump and his deputy.

The White House announced this week that one of President Donald Trump’s close servants tested positive for the new strain of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) on May 7, after appearing

President Trump said that he did not have regular `personal contact` with this military personnel.

Concerns about the appearance of Covid-19 at the White House increased on May 8, when a staff member of Vice President Mike Pence also tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Ms. Miller’s Covid-19 infection forced Vice President Pence to cancel his flight to Iowa.

The threat is present

Consecutive cases of Covid-19 have shown the danger of virus infection in the White House, thereby raising questions about the measures being implemented to limit the risk of infection for two senior officials.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spoke up on May 8 to affirm the US government’s efforts to ensure the safety of the President and Vice President through new measures such as contact tracing, implementing

“This could happen anywhere.

The White House boss’s statement further emphasizes the unprecedented threat that the Covid-19 epidemic poses to the White House.

President Trump, who has been criticized for delays in conducting mass testing, acknowledged that testing is not a perfect shield, if someone becomes infected with the virus in the time between tests.

Experts have repeatedly warned about the high level of infection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, especially in crowded and close-knit places like the West Wing of the White House.

The White House is said to have implemented more strict measures and procedures to protect the president and vice president.

People who come to meet Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence will receive rapid Covid-19 testing when they arrive at the White House.

“I don’t want to elaborate on the entire process that we just implemented, but I can say that this is probably the safest place you can go,” Mr. Meadows emphasized.

Habit of not wearing masks

Masks seem to be a particular sticking point for President Trump – who is famous for preserving his image and is seeking to convince Americans that it is safe to return to work.

The White House has so far still used Abbott Labs’ rapid testing kit that provides results in just 15 minutes.

President Trump did not wear a mask when visiting the World War II Memorial on the 75th anniversary of the end of the war.

None of the about 30 Republican lawmakers and US government officials attending the meeting with President Trump wore masks.

Meeting attendees explained that they had been tested and that federal government guidance also said that masks were only meant to prevent infected people from spreading the virus.

Both Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence caused controversy recently when they did not wear masks.
