President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis on Friday poses a major health risk to dozens of high-level government officials who he recently interacted with and who could now potentially contract the virus.
Over the past week, Trump attended a series of White House ceremonies and press briefings, travelled to different states for campaign rallies, and participated in the first presidential debate. Members of his staff, administration, family, and supporters were present at the various events.
Several within Trump’s orbit who may have been exposed to the virus have already taken COVID-19 tests, with some testing positive. Health experts have warned that false negatives are possible within the first few days of infection, so results could change with additional testing.
Here’s a chart that shows all the top officials who have been near Trump or attended events with him since Sept. 26.
