Kayleigh McEnany infected with COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak in the White House keeps worsening.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has become the latest person to announce that she has been infected with coronavirus. It comes after she addressed the media multiple times.
In a statement, Ms McMenany said “After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms.
“No reporters, producers, or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit.
“Moreover, I definitively have no knowledge of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis prior to holding a White House press briefing on Thursday.
“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information tot he American people at this time.
“With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”
She’s the latest White House staffer to test positive after US President Donald Trump and others tested positive.
She has addressed the media several times in recent days without wearing a mask.
