Corey Lewandowski tests positive for coronavirus


Corey Lewandowski, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday but is feeling well, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Lewandowski has traveled to various states to promote the campaign’s legal challenges to the presidential election results, but has spent recent days in Philadelphia, where he believes he could have contracted the virus from any number of people.

He did attend the election night party at the White House along with his friend, Trump campaign senior adviser David Bossie, who has since tested positive.

Apart from Bossie, Lewandowski’s diagnosis comes after reports within the past week that White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson have also been infected.

Lewandowski is the latest of several Trump campaign aides and administration officials who have recently tested positive in what appears to be a third White House coronavirus outbreak.
