Mike Pompeo says he and his wife have tested negative for the coronavirus
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he and his wife have tested negative for COVID-19. The duo was examined on their airplane 20 minutes prior to landing in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on Friday.
Mike Pompeo said that it was the fourth time in two weeks he has been tested.
Earlier today, US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania tested positive for the coronavirus. Trump tweeted, "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!."
The White House doctor said Trump and the First Lady will quarantine "within the White House."
The news comes shortly after a senior aide Hope Hicks contracted the virus, whom Trump spent substantial time with this week.
