World report: Anthony Fauci and two other members of the White House Covid-19 task force will be quarantined

Three members of the White House Coronavirus task force were quarantined after being in contact with a person who tested positive for Covid-19. This happens when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson prepares to present his "road map" to a new normal in a national program and the number of global infections exceeds four million.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, are expected to Stephen Hahn, works remotely by due to potential exposure to Covid-19.

The Fauci Institute said it had tested negative for Covid-19 and will continue to do so regularly. He added that he was considered to be of relatively low risk due to the degree of his exposure and that he would take the necessary precautions to mitigate the risk of personal contact while performing his duties. While he stays at home and telecommutes, Fauci will go to the White House if called and will take all precautions, the institute said.

Redfield will telecommute for the next two weeks after it has been determined that he has low-risk exposure to someone in the White House, the CDC said in a statement on Saturday evening. The statement said he was feeling well and has no symptoms.

A few hours earlier, the Food and Drug Administration confirmed that Hahn had contacted someone who had tested positive and been quarantined for the next two weeks. It was negative for the virus.

The three men were scheduled to testify before a Senate committee on Tuesday, and it is understood that they will be authorized to do so by videoconference.

Trump, who publicly identified Miller's positive test, said he was not concerned about the spread of the virus in the White House. However, officials said they are tightening security protocols.

Redfield tried to use the exhibit as a teaching moment. The CDC statement says that if you have to go to the White House to fulfill your responsibilities as a coronavirus staff member, you will follow CDC practices for critical infrastructure workers.

These guidelines require Redfield and everyone working in the workgroup to take their temperature and track symptoms every day, cover their faces and stay away from others.

Trump resisted wearing a mask. During a meeting with the country's main military leaders on Saturday evening, he did not wear a mask during the brief portion that the journalists could see. The generals around Trump were also unmasked, but the participants were seated a few feet apart.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said the administration is stepping up its mitigation efforts. It already requires daily temperature checks from everyone entering the complex and has encouraged social distance between those who work in the building.
