Three members of the Coronavirus task force of the US have placed themselves in isolation after getting in contact with positive Covid-19 persons. The thing to worry about is that one of the most prominent and secure buildings in the area is also not safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), will now go to the White House only for relevant meetings and will have to wear a mask, as he is in a “modified” quarantine after having “limited” exposure to the virus. After the meetings, he will return to his office at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and work by himself in isolation.
Another member of the task force, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield will be “teleworking for the next two weeks” after he got infected when he came in contact with a coronavirus affected person. But, Redfield says he is feeling fine and doesn’t show any symptoms of the deadly disease.
The third member of the Trump’s task force, who is going to be in quarantine, is commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, Stephen Hanh. Even though he has tested negative for the virus, as a precautionary step, he will be kept in isolation for two weeks.
Other top officials of Trump’s administration get coronavirus affected
They are not the only top officials who have got coronavirus infected. Reportedly, a person working as a valet for US President Donald Trump’s also tested positive for the virus. Even though the virus has reached inside the White House, President Donald Trump has repeatedly refused to wear the mask. But, recently, he said that he would get tested daily for the virus. Until now, all his tests that were done in the past have come out to be negative.
Apart from this, at least 11 members of the Secret Service who are in charge of protecting President Donald Trump and other top officials had the virus, reports said.
Recently President Trump has revealed that Vice President Mike Pence’s Press Secretary Katie Miller has also got the infection.
