Australian pol tests positive for coronavirus, days after meeting Ivanka, Barr


An Australian politician has tested positive for coronavirus, just days after meeting with Ivanka Trump and Attorney General William Barr in Washington.

Peter Dutton, Australia’s minister for home affairs, was last week photographed standing next to Trump, the president’s eldest daughter and adviser, and Barr at a FiveEyes intelligence alliance meeting about addressing online child exploitation:

Dutton, since returned to Australia, shared details of his diagnosis on Twitter Friday.

“This morning I woke up with a temperature and sore throat,” he wrote, noting how he was now in quarantine at a hospital, per state policy.

“I feel fine and will provide an update in due course,” Dutton added.

It’s unclear how Dutton contracted the virus, which has now infected more than 130,000 people around the world, killing more than 4,000. Australia has reported at least 128 people sickened.

President Donald Trump himself has come into contact with multiple people who either have the virus or were exposed to it. He has reportedly refused to be tested.
