US President Donald Trump fear Coronavirus, will undergo Test
ISLAMABAD - Donald Trump has said that he will "most likely" be tested for the coronavirus. The US President's remark came moments after his refusal to take any precautionary measures following his close contact with a Brazilian official who was diagnosed with the coronavirus.
Responding to a question, Trump said : "I didn’t say I wasn’t going to be tested."
"Most likely, yeah," Trump added while downplaying his interaction with the Brazilian official at this resort in Florida. "Not for that reason, but because I think I will do it anyway. Fairly soon, we’re working out a schedule."
It is pertinent to note that Trump, last week, was near Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s communications director, Fabio Wajngarten, who tested positive for the virus just days later.
Earlier on Thursday, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said that "both the President and Vice President had almost no interactions with the individual who tested positive and do not require being tested at this time."
Trump has also declared a national emergency over the coronavirus.
