President Donald Trump has been screened for coronavirus.

Just before a briefing with the White House press corps, Trump said he had his “temperature taken and was fine,” the outlet reported. The test comes after coming into contact with an official now known to have tested positive for Covid-19.

He shared the same table with a guest at Mar-a-Lago who has since tested positive for the new coronavirus, CNBC reported.

The incident took place at his Florida resort last weekend, when Trump was hosting a Brazilian delegation including the country’s President Jair Bolsonaro (coronavirus whose tests results still remains shrouded in secrecy and controversy ) and his press secretary, Fabio Wajngarten.

While addressing Americans this week, he announced he has imposed travel ban on Europe for 30 days and admonish state governors to set -up emergency centres for diagnosis and treatment of coronavirus.
