Former Governor and Trump Debate Prep Team Member Tests Positive for Coronavirus

The number of those testing positive after visiting the White House is alarming…and rising.

The eyes of the entire world are upon the United States in this fraught and frazzling moment.

Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis is perhaps the most serious presidential health crisis since Ronald Reagan was shot.  And, at least in Regan’s case the nation wouldn’t be forced to wait several days to know whether or not the President of the United States was going to be all right.

Trump isn’t out of the woods yet according to White House sources, and he’s receiving the very best care that he could at Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland.

The President’s infection has prompted a righteous flurry of contact tracing and medical sleuthing, as experts attempt to discover the source of this now-overwhelming outbreak.  Two particular incidents are believed to be possible culprits:  The Rose Garden nomination ceremony for potential Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and the debate preparations undertaken by Trump in the West Wing.

In the case of the Rose Garden event, over a half dozen attendees have already tested positive for the virus.  On Saturday, one of Trump closes acquaintances, and one of his debate prep team members, announced a positive diagnosis as well.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Saturday that he checked into a Morristown Medical Center after testing positive for COVID-19.

Christie made the announcement in a tweet, citing his history of asthma as a reason for taking the “precautionary measure.”

“In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon. While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure,” he said.

In a follow up tweet, he added: “I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon.”

The unfortunate truth of the matter is that, thanks to COVID-19’s unfortunately lengthy incubation period, there will remain the possibility of additional infections coming to light for days or weeks to come.
