COVID-19 has breached the US white house, the official residence of the United States President. This obviously believed to be the most secure facility on the face of the earth.
With this implication, the President won’t be allowed to enter there again; the other three members of the White House Covid-19 task force are under self-isolation for two weeks after possible exposure to the deadly virus.
Dr. Fauci Anthony, who has become the public face of the fight against the Coronavirus in the US, is now one of those who will go into quarantine.
The National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said he was at “relatively low risk” due to the degree of his exposure.
Dr. Anthony’s test came out negative, and he will work from home from now on and will be regularly tested, the institute said.
The Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller, the wife of Donald Trump aide Stephen Miller’s test came out positive for the virus on Friday.
Her diagnosis came out after a valet for US President Donald Trump was confirmed to have the illness.
CDC, Center for Diseases Control and Prevention’s director Dr. Robert Redfield and Commissioner for Food and Drug Administration, Stephen Hahn, are also under self-isolation.
In a statement, the CDC said Dr Redfield, 68, had no symptoms and was not feeling unwell, but would also be teleworking for two weeks after “low risk exposure” to someone at the White House. It is unclear who this person is and an FDA spokesman told Reuters news agency on Friday that 60-year-old Stephen Hahn was also self-isolating. He has also tested negative, the spokesman said.
The three men were due to address a Senate committee on Tuesday.
Before the news about Dr Fauci became public, committee chairman Senator Lamar Alexander said Dr Redfield and Dr Hahn would be allowed to testify by videolink.
