White House Coronavirus Task Force Go On Quarantine
Several members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force have been forced to go on quarantine after they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus. The members who have to go on quarantine are Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Robert Redfield, and Stephen Hahn.
Dr. Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He has become the most prominent member of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force and was a favorite during the press briefings about the pandemic. People liked and trusted his straightforward way of answering questions regarding the pandemic. Dr. Redfield is the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention while Hahn is the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration.
Fauci has tested negative for the virus and his degree of exposure to the person who tested positive made him a low-risk case. He would continue with his duties by working from home although he may still go to the White House if needed. Redfield will also work from home for the next two weeks and he feels no symptoms so far. It was announced that Hahn will also go into self-isolation for the next two weeks after he was exposed to someone who has tested positive.
The press secretary of the Vice President has tested positive for the virus. There was also a member of the military who served as a valet for the President who contracted the disease. These cases highlight the vulnerability of even the most secure facilities when it comes to the virus.
The White House has stepped up its efforts of screening the people who are working near or around President Donald Trump. The efforts are needed in order to protect the President from the disease. It will be remembered that the President has personally resisted the use of masks, which is taken by his followers as a sign of defiance against the pandemic.
