US Vice President Mike Pence has tested negative for COVID-19 after his press secretary was confirmed positive with the coronavirus test. Earlier, Devin O Malley, the spokesman of Pence, said that the Vice President would continue to follow the advice of White House medical unit but not in quarantine.
Both President and Vice President received the criticism for not wearing face masks in public even after grasping the upcoming predicament. The Trump Administration has no idea of putting Trump and Pence apart from the White House, but they opt for modified quarantine.
The concerns rise each day about the spread of coronavirus within the White House. The US infectious diseases expert Anthony Fauci said CNN that Pence has not been in close contact with his press secretary who was found infected on last Friday.
Pence led a task force of coronavirus for more than two months. Anthony Fauci, along with Rober Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Commissioner of Food and Drug Administration, Stephen Hahn, went for self-isolation.
US President Trump said that the White House is not worried about the present scenario. He added that all the officials had taken necessary steps according to the protocol to confront the dangerous virus.
Meanwhile, the confirmed cases of coronavirus showed a surge of 54,590 cases. Hopefully, the number of recoveries also increased to 14.65 lakhs.
