New Delhi (NVI): Stephen Miller, a top aide to US President Donald Trump, tested positive for COVID-19, taking the number of White House staffers infected by the deadly virus to at least 10.
“Over the last five days I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday. Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine,” Miller said in a statement.
President Trump, along with First Lady Melania Trump, tested positive for coronavirus last Thursday, soon after it was known that their close aide Hope Hicks contracted the infection.
Others announcing they had tested positive in recent days include close Trump adviser Hope Hicks; White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany; Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien; and Republican Senators Mike Lee, Thom Tillis and Ron Johnson.
The pandemic has killed more the 210,000 people in the United States, more than any other country.
