Perspectives: Trump's Last Negative COVID-19 Test

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Since President Donald Trump announced Thursday he had tested positive for coronavirus, some have questioned when the president's last negative test was. White House physician Sean Conley said Monday he didn't know when the president's last negative coronavirus test was; some reports from the White House medical team seem to suggest that Trump received a positive coronavirus test sometime Thursday, and still attended campaign events and interviews while waiting for confirmation from a second test. The White House previously said that Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and other officials were being tested daily; however, some say Trump could have been infected for days before he received a positive test. Joe Biden said Tuesday he and Trump should not go ahead with next week's debate if Trump still has COVID-19. Coverage on all sides of the political spectrum have noted that the White House has yet to give an answer about the president's last COVID-19 test. Some left-rated voices say that it is important to know when Trump's last negative test was in order to know how many people were unknowingly exposed to the virus.
