President Trump Test Negative For Corona Virus
Fabio Wajngarten, an aide to the Brazilian president, was among those later confirmed to have the disease.
“This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative,” Sean Conley said in a statement on Saturday.
“I also took the test last night. And I decided I should based on the press conference yesterday. People were asking, did I take the test?” Trump said, referring to his press conference Friday in which he declared a national emergency to free up $50 billion in federal resources to combat coronavirus.
Trump’s decision to take the test comes after he said he was not concerned about coming into close contact with a Brazilian official who tested positive this week for the coronavirus.
Mr Trump, aged 73, did not self-isolate after that meeting, saying he had no symptoms.
But after a barrage of further questions during a new conference at the White House, he said he would get tested.
He was checked on Friday, the White House physician said.
“I have been in daily contact with the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation,” Mr Conley’s statement said.
Official US advice is that people who have contact with a confirmed case should stay at home for 14 days.
The US has more than 2,700 confirmed cases, with 54 deaths.
