Over the past week, Ivanka Trump had been socially distancing herself over the possibility of having contracted the coronavirus. Turns out, the presidential daughter has not been infected by the virus. 

The White House confirmed that Ivanka has tested negative for COVID-19. The 38-year-old took a test after coming into contact with an Australian official who had later tested positive for corona.

BACK TO WORK

Australia's home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, had met Ivanka days before he tested positive for COVID-19. In an official statement to "CNN," the White House announced that she will be back at the White House now while taking precautions like every employee in there.

 "She will undergo the same health/temperature checks to maintain the safety of herself, her children and those in the White House."

During the self-quarantine, Ivanka had been on the phone with her father, Donald Trump, members of Congress, and CEOs. 

Previously, the President dominated the headlines after it was revealed that he had come into contact with multiple people who later tested positive with COVID-19.

NOBODY IS SAFE

Trump was then tested for corona last week and the White House announced over the weekend that he had tested negative for the virus. Meanwhile, vice-president Mike Pence insisted that he doesn't need to be tested because he has shown no symptoms.

Despite coming into close contact with individuals who were later diagnosed with coronavirus, he said that he didn't need to be tested since he and his wife are checking temperatures every day and haven't felt sick.

The coronavirus that first emerged in Wuhan, China, has spread over 160 countries with over 290 thousand reported cases, according to "WHO."

Nearly 13 thousand people have lost their lives due to the pandemic and not even the royals or the government officials are safe.
