This may be serious…
A former CDC official went onto CNN recently and urged President Trump to stay in quarantine for 14 days after finding out that his personal valet contracted the virus.
The CNN anchor John King said, “The president of the United States, a military aid who works very closely with him, has tested positive for coronavirus. The president was retested, and that test shows negative. This aid exhibited symptoms yesterday if it were you if I showed up or if you showed up at your doctor, and that was your story — someone who had been in inches of us, who had symptoms yesterday, who tested positive, what would your recommendation be?”
The official then said, “The recommendation would be to quarantine for 14 days from the last contact with the confirmed case, in this case, the valet. And that means staying home, no visitors, separating yourself from others, monitoring for symptoms, wearing a face-covering when you’re around others. Ideally, you’re not, but that would be the recommendation.”
He continued saying, “We all don’t want to transmit disease. In this case, as a high visibly person, I think he should set an example and really go into that quarantine of 14 days. And don’t put too much stock into one negative test,” he said. “It takes time to develop, you know, enough virus to test positive. So, one test today doesn’t necessarily mean that you know, over the next few days, it may not be something different.”
