Ivanka Trump's secretary became the third White House employee to test negative for coronavirus on Friday following Donald Trump's valet and Mike Pence's aide.

Days after United States President Donald Trump's valet and vice President Mike Pence's Press Secretary tested positive for COVID-19, Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has now tested positive for the virus

As per a report in CNN, the assistant had been working from home for two months before being tested for the virus.

The worrying news comes after Trump's cross-country visit after isolating at the White House, which was meant as a signal that United States was recovering from the pandemic. Instead, it seems, the pandemic came to the White House.

As per reports, 34 members of the US Secret Service have also tested positive, though they do not physically work at the White House.

Amid a falling economy and several protests by "covidiots" across the country against state-imposed lockdowns, the Trump administration had been trying to downplay the crisis with the President pushing states to lift restrictions and resume normal life.

But neither Trump's nonchalance, nor the nightly cleanings of the Whir House or intermittent testing could keep COVID-19 at bay.

As news of Ivanka's assistant teting positive spread, social media was full of reactions with many slamming Trump for advocating the lifting of restrictions and claiming that testing was not necessary, even as three White House employees were tested positive.

Many mocked the President for previously suggesting unscientific cures for COVID-19 including disinfectants and bleach and claiming in February that coronavirus was a politicised hoax by Democrats.

Some even claimed that the White House was now a "hot-spot" for the spread of the virus.

As per reports, Ivanka and husband as well as Trump advisor Jared Kushner both tested negative for coronavirus on Friday.
