Trump says no need for him to get coronavirus test

President Trump on Friday stopped in at the Atlanta headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the agency marshaling the response to coronavirus - a major political test for his administration.

President Trump called Sean Hannity's show and told people who become infected with COVID-19/coronavirus to go to work. Twenty six people have now died in the United States after contracting Covid-19. "Our numbers are lower than just about anybody", Trump said about cases of the virus.

Mr Trump, who often points to the stock market as a gauge of his economic record, criticised news media organisations' coverage of the coronavirus outbreak and accused Democrats of hyping the situation "far beyond what the facts would warrant".

U.S. President Donald Trump is asked why he has not been tested, despite being in contact with people who have self-isolated due to exposure to the coronavirus. The White House learned about the suspected case on Thursday.

The White House overruled health officials who wanted to recommend that elderly and physically fragile Americans be advised not to fly on commercial airlines because of the new coronavirus, a federal official told The Associated Press. Both video and transcription of the clip indicated that Trump did not say that. I don't feel that any reason. With that, we can rest assured that President Doctor Trump, who understands this virus better than anyone, has everything in the USA under control.

"I think the 3.4% percent is really a false number".

Newsweek reached out to USA health officials to ask if they concur with the president's comments, but has yet to receive a response.

In addition to payroll tax relief, Trump has said he wants help for hourly-wage workers to ensure they're "not going to miss a paycheque" and "don't get penalized for something that's not their fault".

"The president's press conference last week, that was a trillion dollars", Scaramucci said.

Cruz's press office said in a statement on Monday that he "has not exhibited any symptoms" of COVID-19 in the last 11 days, and "is not now experiencing any symptoms".

Over 500 cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed in 35 states and the District of Columbia, not counting cases stemming from repatriation or contained on a cruise ship that docked in California, Trump administration officials said.

"In the next couple of weeks we should be ratcheted up to get many more out", Fauci said on NBC's Today program.

In Florida, state health officials said everyone returning from China, Iran, South Korea and Italy must isolate for 14 days while travellers from other countries affected by the outbreak should monitor their health.

"Thankfully she's negative, the person", Grisham said.
