U.S. housing secretary contracts coronavirus


U.S. Housing Secretary Ben Carson tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, an ABC reporter said on Twitter, becoming the latest victim of a second outbreak affecting the White House and top advisers to President Donald Trump.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who has frequently appeared at public events without wearing a mask, was diagnosed last week, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters on Friday, along with several other staffers.
