According to the US Centers for Disease Control’s quarantine guidelines, people who have been in close contact with someone with coronavirus should stay home for 14 days after last contact with someone who has COVID-19.
Donald Trump and his wife Melania passed an emergency coronavirus test on Thursday evening after the discovery of COVID-19 at the chief adviser to the President of the United States, who was in daily contact with the first person of the state.
“She really tested positive, I just heard about it. She is hardworking. She often wears masks, but she tested positive. Then I just went and took the test, and the first lady just took the test,” Trump said on the phone live on Fox News. Trump suggested that Hicks could have contracted the coronavirus as a result of communicating with a carrier of the virus at one of the events.
