The summit of leaders of the world’s seven most industrialized nations will take place “at the end of June” at the White House in Washington, DC, despite the situation created by the coronavirus, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said.
She told a news conference that US President Donald Trump considers the summit an example of the gradual opening up of the US economy.
“We will protect the world leaders who come here, just as we protect the people in the White House,” McEnany said.
Two White House staff members tested positive for coronavirus.
One of them returned to work on Tuesday.
Otherwise the United States is the worst affected in the world by coronavirus.
They have recorded over 1.6 million affected and over 98,000 deaths from this virus.
