USA President Donald Trump Likely to be Tested for COVID-19 after Multiple Contacts with People
President Trump Spent time at his Private Club in Florida. There were three people with him who, later on, tested Positive for CoronaVirus. A Brazilian official who met Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago has tested positive for coronavirus. The Brazilian Embassy in Washington announced late Friday that the country’s chargé d’affaires, Nestor Forster, tested positive after sitting at Trump’s dinner table.
Not just that, Many Top Administration Officials, including Attorney General William Barr and Trump’s daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump also confirmed Positive. So, Opposition Parties and Critics are asking President to Quarantine himself before it Gets too Late.
Multiple lawmakers and citizens across the country who have had the same Degree of Exposure have opted to Voluntarily Quarantine themselves and get tested out of an Abundance of Caution.
But instead of Persuing the Advice of Many Medical Professionals, Trump Decided not to Isolate himself because Symptoms weren’t Appearing. However, he agreed to submit to Testing “FAIRLY SOON” but Shattering the Advice of Health officials by Repeatedly Shaking Hands with Attendees during a Rose Garden press conference on Efforts to Combat the Pandemic.
Even so, Trump told the nation, “All Americans have a Role to Play in Defeating this Virus.”
“Anyone can be a carrier for the virus and risk transmission to older Americans and those with underlying health conditions,” Trump said, adding, “We must take all precautions and be responsible for the actions that we take and that we see other people take.”
Why Trump is Reluctant
According to the Close Friends of Trump, he’s reluctant to take the test for fear that it would Project Weakness or Worry. He wants to appear Strong against such Crisis.
White House officials insist Trump had only minimal contact with Fábio Wajngarten, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s communications director, who has tested positive for the virus. Wajngarten posed for a photo with Trump, shook his hand and attended a birthday party held for Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is dating the president’s eldest son. Trump had more extensive contact with Forster, but the White House physician said in a Friday night letter that because “all interactions occurred before any symptoms were onset,” the White House considers them “low risk” so “there is no indication for home quarantine at this time.”
People who are exposed to the virus don’t show symptoms immediately; there is an incubation period of anywhere from two to 14 days. And the CDC is most concerned with close contact, which it defines as being coughed on or within about 6 feet of someone who is sick for a prolonged period of time. The CDC doesn’t consider it risky to walk past someone with the virus or to be briefly in the same room with them.
Many doctors across the country, however, have been advising those with any exposure to take precautions. And Trump, who is 73, is considered to be at higher risk of developing serious complications because of his age.
Trump Needs to Test himself
The president should get tested, even if he is not exhibiting symptoms, said Stephen Morse, a Columbia University expert on the spread of diseases.
”Anyone who’s infected is a risk of spreading it to other people,” he said. “That can be true of people who are infected but don’t have symptoms.”
Dr Leana Wen, an emergency physician and visiting professor at the George Washington University Milken School of Public Health who once served as the health commissioner for the city of Baltimore, said COVID-19 is “highly transmittable” and anyone who comes within six feet of someone who is infected could become infected and spread it, without even knowing they are sick.
“We are at a time of an international public health emergency,” she said, so everybody should abide by public health guidelines, “no matter their position or their title.”
Any administration official with a known exposure, she said, “should follow the same guidelines as anyone else” and be self-quarantining and monitoring their symptoms.
As for the president, she said, “in order to be the commander-in-chief of the country … he needs to take care of himself.”
