President Trump announced Sunday that Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, had tested positive for Covid-19, making him at least the 53rd person in the president’s inner circle to contract the virus, according to tallies by the New York Times and NBC News, a shocking number that is almost assuredly linked to administration officials’ lax approach to following Covid-19 safety recommendations.
Trump, McEnany and several other members of the president’s orbit tested positive for Covid-19 after an indoor/outdoor White House event in September, at which few attendees wore masks.
Forbes has reached out to Giuliani for comment.
73% of the members of Congress to test positive for Covid-19 are Republicans, according to a Forbes tally.
