Coronavirus: After contact with Brazilian who tested positive, Trump set to take test

The United States President Donald Trump said Friday he would “likely” be tested soon for COVID-19 (coronavirus), although he stressed he is “displaying no symptoms.”

Trump was pressed repeatedly during a White House news conference where he declared a national emergency over COVID-19 on whether he should be tested after coming into contact with a Brazilian official now known to have COVID-19.

“I don’t have any of the symptoms.

“And we don’t want people without symptoms to go and do the test,” he told reporters.

But when grilled by reporters about his encounter with the official at his Florida resort, he changed tack, saying: “I didn’t say I wasn’t going to be tested” and that he “most likely” would be, “fairly soon.”

“Not for that reason but because I think I will do it anyway,” Trump said.
