Expomaster gathered reports in which CNN states that a statement from the White House said Donald Trump took the test for coronavirus after coming into recent contact with two individuals who have now been tested positive for the virus.
“One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the president remains symptom-free which is not surprising as it is one of deadly characteristics of the virus.
“Last night after an in-depth discussion with the President regarding COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed with the test which was after recently meeting with Brazilian officials who tested positive to the virus on Saturday.
“I have been in daily contact with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and White House Coronavirus Task Force. “This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative,” Conley said in a statement.
“We are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation,” he added.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the announcement came hours after Trump said at a news conference that he had taken the test for the virus to confirm and be sure of his status.
