After a military aide of Mr Donald Trump tested positive for COVID19, U,S, President Donald Trump on Thursday said he would undergo the Coronavirus test every day.
A military aide of Mr President, whom officials described as a personal valet, tested positive for COVID19. Donald Trump said he had very little contact with him.
I have had very little personal contact with this gentleman. I know him. He is a good person. But I have had very little personal contact. Vice President Mike Pence has had very little contact with the COVID19 positive patient. But Mike was tested and I was tested. We were both tested, Mr President told reporters in the oval office of the White House.
Responding the questions, Mr President said he, the Vice President and other staff of the White House would be tested for COVID19 every day.
I just had a COVID19 test. In fact, I had one COVD19 test yesterday and one today, and both are negative. Mike just had a COVID19 test and it is negative , he said.
But they do the COVID19 tests and it just shows you that the fallacy - it is what I have been saying - testing is not a perfect art. No matter what you do, the COVID19 testing is not a perfect art. So we test once a week. Now we are going to go COVID19 testing once a day. But even when you test once a day, somebody could - something happens where they catch something, Donald Trump said.
