HUD Secretary Ben Carson diagnosed with COVID-19

Another member of President Trump’s cabinet, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, tested positive for COVID-19, the White House confirmed on Monday.

The news of Carson’s positive test comes just after White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows received a positive coronavirus diagnosis.

Carson reportedly sought a COVID-19 test on Monday morning after experiencing symptoms consistent with the novel coronavirus disease.

“He is in good spirits and feels fortunate to have access to effective therapeutics which aid and markedly speed his recovery,” Carson’s chief of staff, Coalter Baker, told ABC on Monday morning.

Both Carson and Meadows attended an election-night party at the White House, though administration officials said that a negative COVID-19 test was required to attend the party.

The Washington Post reported on Saturday that “five other Trump aides … received positive test results in the period around Election Day.”

With a leader who refused proper, early treatment…it should not be surprising to learn of others who frequent the White House….and who also end up with Covid 19.

You don’t know what you are talking about.Trump sought medical treatment as soon as he tested positive. Amazing how you all won’t stop pushing lies. Just because you keep saying it doesn’t make it true.

It could be Brucella. It acts like a Flu virus and the Chinese sent it to US in froze foods

If they chose to participate in the festivities without proper protection, they deserve what they get. They’re the one’s who’s supposed to be setting examples for their country.
