    More White House Coronavirus news.

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is racing to contain an outbreak of Covid-19 inside the White House, as some senior officials believe that the disease is already spreading rapidly through the warren of cramped offices that make up the three floors of the West Wing.

    Three top officials leading the government’s coronavirus response have begun two weeks of self-quarantine after two members of the White House staff — one of President Trump’s personal valets and Katie Miller, the spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence — tested positive. But others who came into contact with Ms. Miller and the valet are continuing to report to work at the White House.

    “It is scary to go to work,” Kevin Hassett, a top economic adviser to the president, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” program on Sunday. Mr. Hassett said he wore a mask at times at the White House, but conceded that “I think that I’d be a lot safer if I was sitting at home than I would be going to the West Wing.”

    He added: “It’s a small, crowded place. It’s, you know, it’s a little bit risky. But you have to do it because you have to serve your country.”

    The discovery of the two infected employees has prompted the White House to ramp up its procedures to combat the virus, asking more staff members to work from home, increasing usage of masks, and more rigorously screening people who enter the complex.

    The concern about an outbreak of the virus at the White House — and the swift testing and contact tracing being done to contain it — underscores the broader challenge for Americans as Mr. Trump urges them to begin returning to their workplaces despite warnings from public health officials that the virus continues to ravage communities across the country.

    Most restaurants, offices, and retail stores do not have the ability to regularly test all their employees and quickly track down and quarantine the contacts of anyone who gets infected. At the White House, all employees are being tested at least weekly, officials said, and a handful of top aides who regularly interact with the president are being tested daily.

    “To get in with the president, you have to test negative,” Mr. Hassett said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

    Mr. Trump continues to reject guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to wear a mask when meeting with groups of people. But a senior administration official said the president was spooked that his valet, who is among those who serve him food, had not been wearing a mask. And he was annoyed to learn that Ms. Miller tested positive and has been growing irritated with people who get too close to him, the official said.

    Two senior administration officials said there were no plans to keep Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence apart because of a concern that they both could be incapacitated by Covid-19.

    Concern about the spread of the virus in the White House has temporarily sidelined three of the most high-profile members of the coronavirus task force — Dr. Robert R. Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Dr. Stephen Hahn, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration; and Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

    Dr. Redfield and Dr. Hahn announced over the weekend that they would self-quarantine for two weeks after coming in contact with an infected member of the president’s staff. Both attended a meeting in the Situation Room last week where Ms. Miller was present, and they said they would continue to participate in the response effort from home. Dr. Fauci said he, too, had begun a “modified quarantine” after what he called a “low risk” contact with an infected staff member.

    Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee, said that all three doctors would participate on Tuesday by videoconference in a previously scheduled hearing on the virus response and efforts to reopen the economy.

    Ms. Miller, who was a fixture at the White House during the weeks when the task force was holding daily briefings, received her positive diagnosis on Friday morning but had been negative on previous tests as recently as the day before. It is unclear whether the earlier results might have been in error.

    Like other members of the White House staff, Ms. Miller did not regularly wear a mask while at work. On Thursday, just hours after receiving a negative diagnosis, she was seen on television talking without a mask within a few feet of several reporters, all of whom were wearing one.

    Stephen Miller, one of the president’s closest advisers and Ms. Miller’s husband, is also not expected to come into the White House for the foreseeable future, according to people familiar with his plans. Mr. Miller tested negative for the virus on Friday after his wife’s positive diagnosis earlier in the day.


    The White House is frequently testing its staff using ID Now, a rapid test by Abbott Laboratories that can generate a result in five to 13 minutes.

    The Abbott Laboratories tests are fast but they have a 15% to 25% false-negative test result rate. That means that people with the virus can test negative and still have the virus incubating inside them and they can spread the virus around to other people.

    The White House and this country may be in BIG TROUBLE. Even Fox News knows this is true.

    Virus inside the White House

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/09/opini...rad/index.html


    The Press secretary to Vice President Pence tested positive for the coronavirus SARS CoV2

    A personal Valets to President Donald John Trump also tested positive for SARS CoV2.

    This is very dangerous for our national security. What if both Trump and Pence get sick with the virus at the same time? EEEK!

    VP Pense playing with fire

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/10/polit...rus/index.html

    Pense refuses to self-quarantine and will be back at the White House on Monday which could spread the virus. He and the President get tested every day but Mike was in close contact with his Press Secretary Katy who tested positive for the virus last Friday. And the tests being used by the White House (Abbott quick tests) are known to give false negative about 15% to 25% of the time.
