Mike Pence's Press Secretary Announces She's Recovered from COVID-19 — and She's Pregnant



McEnany, 32, told reporters at a press briefing on Tuesday that she wasn't sure if Trump's valet had returned to work and didn't know if anyone else in the White House has tested positive for COVID-19 in the weeks since Miller and the valet's diagnosis.

"It's not something that I regularly keep tabs on," she said.

A senior Trump administration official told PEOPLE earlier this month that the president's physician and White House operations staff were making sure "every precaution is taken to keep the president, first family and the entire White House complex safe and healthy at all times."

The U.S. was closing in on 100,000 deaths from the virus as of Tuesday — a grave landmark in the pandemic — while globally the New York Times reports at least 346,283 people have died from the virus out of 5.4 million confirmed cases.

The contagious virus has shown it knows no political bounds, infecting officials from governments across the globe in recent months — including in the U.S.

McEnany said Tuesday that the Trump administration was still planning to host the annual G7 summit with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K.

"We will protect world leaders who come here just like we protect people in the White House," she said.

She said the U.S. was looking to host the summit in late June and the administration planned to host it at the White House.
