White House shut down due to many staff testing positive for Covid-19 days after President Trump
Positive COVID test hasn’t only hit President Trump and his wife, but now is affecting a large part of White House staff.
Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Sunday that the White House will not release names or numbers of staff with positive results to COVID. McEnany said due to privacy concerns the White House will not release any information on how many employees have the virus despite previous assurances by Alyssa Farah, the White House Director of Strategic Communications – that the numbers possibly would come out.
“There are privacy concerns,” McEnany said. “We take seriously safeguarding the information of personnel here in the White House.”
This is another outrageous way of covering up for the President and his staff in regards to how careless they have taken this virus. A careless mistake that has now endangered both West Wing staffers as well as members of the secret service.
Everything is still up in the air but there will be a close eye and ears on this as more staff report that they are positive for COVID-19.
One thing for certain, this does not look good on the global stage, especially with this President still joy riding around while being infected.
