"Full-blown freak-out": WH aides anxious as coronavirus cases rise in Trump's orbit

Fear and anxiety among White House staffers hit a new level Monday after White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed that she and two of her aides were positive for the coronavirus, sources said…

Multiple White House sources told ABC News there is “a full-blown freak-out” in the administration waiting to see who will be next to test positive — with aides not trusting each other and some trying to find ways to avoid coming into work at all. “Because we’ve had some cases in the West Wing, more people are working remotely today than in previous days, and that’s the way the process is supposed to work,” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said Monday afternoon.

The sources added that there weren’t many staffers in the West Wing Monday afternoon and there was a lot of regret for not taking the coronavirus more seriously by not wearing masks and social distancing regularly.
