Trump coronavirus test not required say's White Hous physician:

US President Donald Trump does not need to be tested or quarantined for coronavirus despite being in proximity to infected dignitaries at Mar-a-Lago, the White House physician said in a statement today.

Three members of a Brazilian delegation that traveled to the US have tested positive. One of them was seated at the same dinner table as Trump at Mar-a-Lago last Saturday, while another shook the President’s hand and took a photograph with him, according to the physician’s statement.

"These interactions would be categorized as LOW risk for transmission per CDC guidelines, and as such, there is no indication for home quarantine at this time," the statement said.
"Additionally, given the President himself remains without symptoms, testing for Covid-19 is not currently indicated."

On Thursday, the White House press secretary said Trump and Vice President Mike Pence "do not require being tested at this time."

Then on Friday, when asked about it by a reporter, Trump said he would "likely" receive a coronavirus test "fairly soon."

The White House was constantly evaluating whether to test the President and take measures to prevent the virus from spreading among Trump's close confidants, according to one senior official, who said aides are keenly aware of the optics of testing the commander-in-chief.

The house passed a bill against coronavirus which is backed by donald Trump. Trump backing the bill cleared the way for a broad, bipartisan vote. The Senate is expected to take up the measure when it returns to session next week.

Donald Trump also mentioned in a series of tweets that  “I fully support” the legislation.

"This Bill will follow my direction for free Coronavirus tests, and paid sick leave for our impacted American workers. I have directed the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Labor to issue regulations that will provide flexibility so that in no way will Small Businesses be hurt. I encourage all Republicans and Democrats to come together and VOTE YES!,” he said.

Mean while The Pentagon has announced a series of new travel restrictions for US service members and Department of Defense civilians, halting all domestic travel including station changes and temporary duty assignments.

According to CNN, There are now more than 142,000 coronavirus cases globally and more than 5,300 related deaths, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization.

The latest breakdown of coronavirus cases, countries effected and death numbers:

  • Total cases: 142,320
  • Deaths: 5,388
  • Countries or territories with cases: 129

China remains the hardest-hit country, with close to 81,000 cases. Italy has more than 17,000 cases, followed by Iran, with more than 11,000 cases. 

The US hospitals aren't ready to fight coronavirus: 

Some health experts are warning that hospitals are not prepared to manage the anticipated number of patients if there is a spike in severe cases. It's unclear exactly how many people might need to be hospitalized, but doctors are trying to figure that out as healthcare systems prepare for what could be a large influx of patients.

According to Dr. Jame Lawler, On March 5, he predicted that over the next two months, 4.8 million patients will be hospitalized in the US because of the coronavirus -- including 1.9 million stays in the intensive care unit.

"This estimation is just that, an estimation," Lawler said in an emailed statement. "However it is based upon the best epidemiological modeling and opinion of experts in pandemics and respiratory viral disease."
