The White House coronavirus outbreak has infected 34 “staffers and other contacts” according to a leaked government memo.

The memo was distributed on Wednesday amongst senior leadership at FEMA, an agency within the Department of Homeland security, according to ABC News.

It was previously reported that a total of 24 White House aids and their contacts had tested positive for the virus.

The memo also states that a senior advisor to the president is positive for coronavirus.

Both Hope Hicks and Stephen Miller, who are senior advisors to the president, have recently contracted the virus.
