Internal memo links 34 coronavirus cases to White House: report

Thirty-four White House staffers and "other contacts" have been infected with the coronavirus in recent days, according to a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) memo obtained by ABC News.

The figure is 10 more than 24 staffers previously reported, although the memo did not specify the nature of the “other contacts,” according to ABC.

The memo says an unnamed top adviser to the president is among those who have tested positive for the virus.
