Ivanka Trump and William Barr Met Australian Official Who Has Coronavirus

Attorney General William Barr and the President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, both met with an Australian official who has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus. They are the latest people close to President Donald Trump who’ve had contact with someone who has the disease.

Conservative politician Peter Dutton reported that he’s tested positive for Covid-19 on Twitter. He met Barr and Trump on 6 March.

“I feel fine and will provide an update in due course,” he said. However, his diagnosis should encourage both Barr and Ivanka Trump to enter self-isolation.

President Trump has also recently been in contact with one Brazilian official who’s tested positive for the virus and he’s met with Republicans who are now in self-isolation after interacting with a man at CPAC who tested positive for the disease, which the World Health Organisation now says is a pandemic.

The White House maintains that the President has not been tested for Covid-19 but an increasing number of those close to him appear to have been exposed to the virus.
