US President Donald Trump has tested negative for COVID-19 for a second time, according to the White House on Thursday.
White House physician Sean Conley said Trump was tested for the virus earlier in the day, “utilizing a new, rapid point-of-care test capability”.“The President tested negative for COVID-19,” Conley wrote.
During a press briefing at the White House , the president said he took the test “really out of curiosity”.
The US Food and Drug Administration approved the new coronavirus test last week, which officials have claimed can provide results in 15 minutes.
Trump was first tested for coronavirus on March 14, after a Brazilian official who previously met him at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida had tested positive.
On March 24, Trump’s wife and First Lady, Melania Trump had tested negative for the deadly virus..
