US President Donald Trump worked this week with a White House employee infected with the coronavirus. That’s what Trump said in Fox News.
White House workers have also started wearing mouth masks since the man tested positive for the virus, Trump said.
The staff in the kitchen did that earlier, as a precaution.
During the interview, the President also addressed his allegations against China of the origin of the coronavirus. “I don’t think China released the virus on purpose.”
According to Trump, it came from a lab in Wuhan city, where the outbreak started.
A World Health Organization (WHO) researcher said on Friday that the virus likely came from a bat. Trump responded by stating that the WHO is “a puppet of China”.
