    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A third member of the White House inner circle has contracted coronavirus: Ivanka Trump's personal assistant has tested positive for the potentially-deadly disease, CNN and CBS News reported late Friday night.

    Word of her assistant being positive follows confirmation earlier Friday that Mike Pence aide Katie Miller tested positive. On Thursday, it was reported that President Trump's valet, who serves him his meals, is positive too. It also emerged on Friday that 11 members of the Secret Service currently have the virus, 23 have recovered from it, and 60 are currently self-quarantining.

    The assistant has been working remotely for nearly two months and has not been near Ivanka, who serves as adviser to her father, according to CNN.

    The assistant was asymptomatic and was tested out of caution.

    According to CNN's source, both Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner were tested on Friday for the virus, and the results came back negative.
