The test he did in this regard came out negative, the White House official doctor announced Saturday evening.”Tonight I received confirmation that the test is negative,” said Sean Conley, in a statement. “One week after having lunch with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the president has no symptoms,” the White House official said.
The White House chief tested after several people from the Brazilian delegation he received last weekend at his residence in Mar-a-Lago were later found to be infected with the new coronavirus.
Fabio Wajngarten, the Brazilian President’s press secretary, is among those confirmed with the new coronavirus. He had photographed himself with the American president.
In addition to Jair Bolsonaro’s press secretary, other officials in the Brazilian delegation tested positive for coronavirus are a lawyer, a senator and the Brazilian ambassador to the US. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez – who also met with Fabio Wajngarten – announced on Friday that he is infected.
The 73-year-old Donald Trump did not isolate himself after finding out that his guests were contaminated, saying he had no symptoms. This, even though the US authorities recommend those who came in contact with a confirmed case to stay in isolation for 14 days. After asking a lot of questions at a White House press conference, Trump agreed to take a test. The evidence was taken on Friday, the White House doctor said.
The Brazilian delegation also met with Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
The United States has recorded more than 2,800 coronavirus cases and 57 deaths. On Friday, President Trump declared a state of emergency nationwide to allocate $ 50 billion to fight the spread of coronavirus.
