Three people in the White House, including President Donald Trump, have tested positive for the coronavirus, raising questions about who may be exposed and why the administration handled the situation the way they did.
What we know:
- Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and top aide Hope Hicks have all tested positive.
- Hicks was experiencing symptoms of the virus by Wednesday. A small group of White House officials knew by Thursday morning that Hicks had tested positive.
- The Trumps are now in quarantine, suggesting they may be asymptomatic, according to CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
- In the White House, every person who has meetings planned with Trump is tested each morning, according to CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins.
What we don't know:
- It's unclear who knew Hicks' diagnosis on Thursday. Trump visited New Jersey that afternoon, and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a news briefing; it's not clear if they were aware of Hicks' diagnosis.
- It's unclear exactly when Trump got tested on Thursday, and how quickly it took place after Hicks' diagnosis was confirmed.
- Hicks appeared to have symptoms first -- but we don't know who infected who.
