Trump's spokesperson latest in inner circle to test COVID positive
US President Donald Trump's spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany on Monday became the latest person in
his inner circle to test positive for Covid-19.
McEnany tweeted that she tested positive in the morning while showing no symptoms but had been
negative in the earlier tests conducted since Thursday when Trump's Counsellor Hope Hicks had been
diagnosed with coronavirus. Trump’s wife First lady of the United States Melania Trump has also tested
positive for the virus.
Attorney General William Barr has announced that he is self-quarantining because of possible exposure
to coronavirus despite test reports returning negative. The convening of the Senate has been postponed
to October 19, leaving just 14 days before the elections.
