CNN medical analyst Dr Jonathan Reiner said on Thursday that House speaker Nancy Pelosi should be cooped up in quarantine as it is likely that both US president Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence could fall ill. It is to be decided to see what rules would be in this situation.
It is still not clear since when Trump, First Lady Melania and Hicks have contracted the virus and precisely which White House staff had transmitted it.
World Health Organization states that, it takes five or six days in general to figure out when someone is infected until symptoms manifest, but it can take 14 days. Seemingly Hicks began to fall sick on Wednesday as per the reports. Hicks had travelled with the president on many occasions this week including Marine One, the presidential helicopter, and Air Force One.
Trump made his health status public and announced on Twitter today morning saying “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!,”
The infection appears to affect Trump’s health to campaign in person for the presidential elections and other forthcoming conferences. “There is no clarity from his office if he will continue to address events over video but his new schedule just lists a midday phone call on “Covid-19 support to vulnerable seniors.”, stated Dr Conley.
