ALERT: Donald Trump confirms multiple White House staffers have tested positive for COVID-19

President Trump on Wednesday confirmed that a White House staffer tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, but said he did not have contact with the individual.

The positive test came after the White House hosted hundreds of people on the South Lawn on Tuesday for the signing of peace accords to mark the normalization of relations between Israel and two Arab countries. Trump offered few details on the latest positive case at the White House.

“Last night i heard about it for the first time, and it’s a small number of cases,” Trump told reporters at a news conference, appearing unfamiliar with the specifics.
