TRUMP TESTS NAGATIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS
 
The White House on Saturday said President Donald Trump tested negative for the novel coronavirus.
 
During a press conference on Friday, reporters asked Trump why he was still not tested after coming into contact with a member of the Brazilian delegation last weekend who had tested positive for the virus.
 
Earlier in the day, Trump confirmed he has been tested for the virus.
 
US EXTENDS TRAVEL BAN TO UK, IRELAND
 
On the same day, the White House announced that the country is extending Europe travel restrictions to Britain and Ireland due to COVID-19, which will be effective Monday midnight.
 
Vice President Mike Pence added that U.S. citizens and legal residents in Britain and Ireland are able to return to the United States through specific airports.
 
The travel ban that Washington imposed on 26 European nations has been effective since Friday midnight.
 
CORONAVIRUS RELIEF PACKAGE PASSED
 
Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a relief package for Americans to confront this public health crisis.
 
The bill will provide free coronavirus testing and two weeks of paid sick and family leave for those affected by the virus.
 
Trump said he supported the legislation, raising the probability that the bill will pass the Senate next week.
