President Donald Trump tested negative for the Chinese coronavirus on Thursday. The President was receiving a test for the virus for the second time since mid-March.
Trump took a new form of coronavirus test that offers “a new, rapid point-of-care test capability,” and the results came back negative. White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said that the President is healthy and is not demonstrating any symptoms of the disease.
Trump stated that he took the new coronavirus ‘instant’ test “really out of curiosity to see how quickly it worked, how fast it worked.” The President mentioned the test during his daily coronavirus press briefing at the White House.
“I just took it this morning. And I took it, it took me literally a minute to take it and it took me — I guess it was 14 or 15 minutes (for results). I went to work, I didn’t wait for it, but it said it took 14 minutes or something with a conclusion and it said the President tested negative for Covid-19.”
President Trump tested for the virus a first time in March after coming into contact with Brazilian government officials since confirmed to have the disease during an event at his Florida Mar-A-Lago resort.
Vice President Mike Pence also tested negative for the virus within the last two weeks after a staff member of his team entered isolation after testing positive. It appears a relatively advanced spread of the disease in the Washington D.C. area may have led to additional precautions in ensuring vital federal personnel are healthy and ready to oversee the federal government’s response to the national epidemic.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti: It’s Time to Cancel “Everything”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sternly instructed residents of his city to cease all outgoing activities of everyday life, citing the county’s dismal coronavirus prospects, which he states are worse than what the nation’s second-largest city faced in March.
“It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. If it isn’t essential, don’t do it.”
Los Angeles County officials enacted a full coronavirus shutdown for three weeks last week, strictly limiting permissible activities and placing the county in a lockdown similar to those utilized across the country at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking, and county officials are concerned the city’s medical system is unprepared to accommodate a surge in coronavirus cases similar to that seen in New York earlier in the year.
Black Lives Matter protestors have staged nightly protests outside of Garcetti’s house demanding special privileges for individuals charged with felonies. However, the Mayor’s emergency order exempts protest gatherings from restrictions, placing them in the same category as congregating for religious services.
Garcetti was seen congregating in a group of chanting BLM demonstrators earlier in the year. Angelenos can only hope that their neighbors will execute greater discretion in the interest of public health and saving lives than their mayor has.
