US President Donald Trump was screened negative for coronavirus, the President’s physician Sean Conley said in a statement on Saturday.
The President agreed on Friday to take the virus test, which killed about 5,800 people worldwide, and got a negative answer on Saturday night, Conley wrote in a memo issued by the White House.
The diagnosis came days after the President stood next to a Brazilian official who had previously found positive for the virus.
Trump was pictured at his private Florida club next to Fabio Wajgarten, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s press secretary, as Brazilian officials visited last week. Wajgarten was later found positive for the disorder.
“One week after dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the president stays symptom-free,” Conley said in his memo. “I have been in regular touch with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we support the application of all of their best practices to minimize risk and prevent spread.”
