Donald Trump’s White House chief from staff Mark Meadows questions positive as coronavirus

It functions as the United States put new daily documents for confirmed cases of this virus to the third successive day on Friday with over 127,000 infections.

Two senior government officials confirmed Friday that Meadows had tested positive for the virus, which has killed over 236,000 Americans so much this season.

They provided no specifics on when the chief of staff came down with the virus or his existing condition, based on reports by Bloomberg News.

Meadows went with Trump from the run-up to election day and last appeared in people early Wednesday morning with no mask since Trump falsely declared success in the vote count. He was among those close aides around Trump when the president came back with the virus over a month before, but had been analyzed daily and preserved his normal work schedule.

Trump, first woman Melania Trump, and two others tested positive for the virus from early October following Trump held large parties of individuals not wearing face-masks, including the ceremony announcing the nomination of now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett into the Supreme Court.

Trump has said that the country is”rounding the flip” about the pandemic, which has been top of mind for voters in Tuesday’s election.

COVID-19 instances from the U.S. have risen more than 50 percent in the previous two weeks. Based on an analysis of the information at John Hopkins University from the Associated Press, the 7-day rolling average to daily new cases climbed from 61,166 on October 22 to 94,625 on November 5.
