US military chiefs in quarantine as Trump Covid chaos spreadsOctober 6, 2020
- Mark Milley, chairman of joint chiefs of staff, in isolation
- Military leaders attended event with president last week
The top general in the US military, Mark Milley, and several other members of the US joint chiefs of staff who advise Donald Trump entered quarantine on Tuesday, as the president, infected with the coronavirus himself, continued to recuperate at the White House.
While the number of White House staff and aides who have tested positive is unknown, given the administration’s cloak of secrecy around the outbreak, total cases appeared to number in the dozens, making the White House one of the hottest active zones for virus circulation in the entire US.
