And for the third day in a row, no new cases were confirmed in Hubei Province.

Update (1850 ET): An official working for Vice President Pence has tested positive for the coronavirus, his office announced Friday, becoming the first known positive test to date for a White House staffer, although the admin is quick to downplay the risk to the executive branch:

"This evening we were notified that a member of the Office of the Vice President tested positive for the Coronavirus."

"Neither Pres. Trump nor VP Pence had close contact with the individual. Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines", a spokeswoman says.
