WASHINGTON, (BM) – Over the past two days, two White House employees have passed a positive coronavirus test, reports The Hill. The publication writes that the tests were passed last Thursday and Friday.

Katie Miller, spokeswoman for Mike Pence’s vice president, became one of those infected: her positive test forced Pence to postpone her trip to Iowa. In addition, the test for coronavirus was passed by all six Miller colleagues who could have contact with her: it is noted that all tests gave a negative result.

According to The Hill, Miller passed a positive test last Friday, while her own test on Thursday gave a negative result. The publication notes that Trump, who was criticized for slow testing, said that tests are not a 100% guarantee, given that you can get infected between tests. The second infected was one of the president’s personal valets: according to Trump, he did not have regular personal contact with him.

At the same time, even if Trump was nervous about the spread of the virus in the White House, he did not show it in public, The Hill notes. “I do not worry. I do what I have to do. At the White House, we took strict precautions,” the publication quotes the words of the President of the United States.

It is reported that now the White House will take even tougher measures to protect the president and vice president. From now on, Trump, Pence and their closest assistants will take coronavirus tests every day. In addition, measures were taken to tighten social distance.

However, there are doubts about how strictly Trump adheres to safety measures, writes The Hill. This is especially true of wearing masks: Trump is known for his great concern for the image and for trying to convince citizens that you can safely return to work. According to the publication, in the past two weeks, Trump has actively urged the country to begin the movement towards economic recovery.

“Someday the virus will go away anyway. The question is whether we need a vaccine. At some point, the virus is likely to disappear itself,” Trump said during a recent meeting with Republican congressmen.
