US President Donald Trump's corona test report is negative for the second time.

White House doctors have started giving rapid coronavirus tests to people who are "in close proximity" to President Trump or Vice President Pence. He tested negative with the test, which he'd displayed at a Rose Garden news conference earlier in the week. White House physician Sean Conley wrote in a memo, "This morning the president was tested again for Covid-19".

President Donald Trump met with executives from the oil industry on Friday as oil prices have dropped significantly in recent months worldwide. "It took only one minute to sample him and the result was reached in 15 minutes".

Vice-President Mike Pence spoke about the government's plan to reimburse hospitals for conducting tests and treating coronavirus patients without insurance. Lockdowns of towns in northern Italy failed to prevent a large-scale outbreak, with more than 105,000 cases and more than 12,000 deaths as of Wednesday.

The White House is stepping up precautions to protect the president and vice president from contracting the new coronavirus. Trump, who is not an official member of the Coronavirus Task Force, has frustrated his critics who frequently accuse the president of using the platform to air grievances about political issues and opponents.

"They call it modeling... where they look at what's happened around the world", Pence said.

-Trump said he probably will not wear a mask, "I don't see it for myself".

According to the latest figures provided by the US-based Johns Hopkins University, there are more than 1,013,157 confirmed cases of COVID-19 infections globally and 52,983 fatalities around on Friday.
