Washington: A White House spokesperson said on Thursday that after discovering that an American soldier working in the White House was infected, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence tested the new coronavirus negatively.
CNN identified the officer as Trump’s personal valet.
“We were recently notified by the White House Medical Unit that a member of the United States Military, who works on the White House campus, has tested positive for Coronavirus. The President and the Vice President have since tested negative for the virus and they remain in great health,” spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
Trump has now received at least two coronavirus tests, and both tests were negative. The White House said the test results on April 2 were negative.
The White House said on April 3 that, out of cautious consideration, anyone expected to be near Trump or Pence will undergo a rapid COVID-19 test.
